Paper Butterfly Poem by Arlene Dery

Paper Butterfly



Silently quiet. Hush,
Delicate wings of purple and gold.

Then - with a gasp of air
propelling up
as life takes hold;

Like a soaring bird,
you flew and danced -
against a canvas of
white clouds and blue sky,

Paper butterfly
on a string,

Tail of flapping flair -
you flutter and loop,
then go down
in a swoop -

And rest and wait -
for a gasp of fresh air.
