The Butterfly - Poem by Edeltraut L. Scheffler Plath

Don't bother me,
Don't smother me
With your unwanted touch.
Just look at me,
Admire me.
Forget about the catch.
I'm free - you see -
And love to be
That way a little longer.
You have no right
To bother me to smother me -
Because you are the stronger.
