Butterfly - Poem by Albashir Adam Alhassan

For over two decades now,
I have wondered,
What makes the butterfly a bird?
Wings to fly? Maybe!

But birds sing songs,
Some sweet, some sour, some strange,
I wonder what song,
A butterfly would sing, if it could!

I wonder too,
When separated from the flowers,
Does it hear the song we sing?
Does it remember the song? !

I remember one I heard since childhood,
A song both bitter and sweet,
Like the bitter-leaf,
Like my life, I guess!
