The lovely butterflies are dancing in the sky

fluttering their wings they pass on by

While my heart beats softly as the winds sways 

I bid them “Hello” and then happily play


How blessed I am that they cross my path 

Even the flowers could not move with such  grace

Though equal in beauty , let’s do the math 

The beautiful flowers just stay in one place


Though they sway in the wind and smell

So incredibly wonderful and very sweet

Only butterflies can make my heart swell

With their magical wings, oh such a treat


If only I could fly and flutter around

And drink nectar from flower to flower

If only I could sail the winds of the town

And gaze down at the world for hours


How splendid to be dancing in the sky

Would you want to be a butterfly?
