Wing Pages Of The Butterfly - Poem by Raj Arumugam

at the nursery
while people
are at purchase
and at transactions
a blue butterfly
comes by
and opens its pages to me
swift and quick
and it says to me:
'Read! Read!
Read my pages! '

'I can’t read, '
I say,
at this brash butterfly

'Read and write!
Read and write
about me,
and all flitting butterflies
and write, you silly! '
it commands

And so I read
and I copy
and these are the words
the words from those
the butterfly
holds up to me
