Young Butterflies Poem by Romeo Della Valle

Young Butterflies

Rating: 4.7

Young butterflies,
Please, let your tender wings grow
Before you try to hit the skies
In an attempt to early fly
When the time is not right!
Scared to Hell you would be
If this dangerous endeavor
You would desperately try
When the time
Doesn't seem to be right!

Take my advice
Young butterflies,
I, the humble gardener
Who in my colorful garden
Have seen many like you
Trying to fly for the first time,
Defying the rules of gravity
When the time is not right!

Young butterflies,
Listen to the echo of the wind
And let Mother Nature
Takes its course!
While happily you welcome
The birth of a new sunrise
That would bring hope
To your tender life!

Young butterflies,
Let your wings grow
Until they are ready to flap
And you would be able to fly
And dance in the skies!
Please, young butterflies,
Listen to my humble advice!
Wishing you luck in your first flight!

Beautiful! Outstanding! No, that's really amazing! Our life is the like the life of the butterfly, we yet believe that we can fly before our wings grow till we fall on our heads.. Your writes are amazing, and you attract the reader's mind to it, keep up the good work, Sir :) 10+++

the hurt inflicted in our young hearts will remain with us for ever.. so it is better to follow the advice of elders instead of getting into trouble in the name of adventure and fun..Well done, Romeo

Gem of a poem for budding butterflies waiting to fly mostly not knowing what, why, where, with whom and how. Great job.
