Paper wings fluttering on the wind
bright colours flashing through the light
many shimmering tones in the sun
warming up together, before flight
silently assembling in great hoards
drawing strength as one in the day
reds, whites, purples and pale blues
catching attention in a big way.
while flitting from flower to flower
tasting that wonderful nectar there
these majestic creatures feed
using their long tongues with flair
wonderful insects for all to see
filling our lives with great pleasure
bright beautiful butterflies
they are here for us to treasure.
Butterflies are like silent fluttering rainbows, brightening up our world!
