The Horizon

The Butterfly


With colored wings of fantasy , from flower to flower ,

The butterfly sails with sublime ease in every ornate bower,

Every moment  an   extended lifetime,  yet life  never fleeting seems,

Every flower shares its fragrance to the many hued denizen's dreams,

Its fiery colors with burning flame the butterfly to each flower spreads,

With refined delight smiles every flower where the butterfly steadily  treads,

O reliever of sorrows , what joyous song of nature do you sing,

What messages of hope and freedom to humankind do you bring ?
