The Tuft Of Flowers
by Robert Frost

I went to turn the grass once after one
Who mowed it in the dew before the sun.

The dew was gone that made his blade so keen
Before I came to view the levelled scene.

I looked for him behind an isle of trees;
I listened for his whetstone on the breeze.

But he had gone his way, the grass all mown,

Butterfly, Butterfly
by Sharon Adamson

Hoping to catch your eye
Circling around you, oh my
Butterfly, butterfly, come into the light
Oh, what a beautiful sight
Flying so gracefully
Into the sky, the butterfly
Trying to catch a butterfly
Fly, fly, fly, butterfly
There he sets upon the mums
I'm having so much fun

Topsy-Turvy World
by William Brighty Rands

IF the butterfly courted the bee,
And the owl the porcupine;
If churches were built in the sea,
And three times one was nine;
If the pony rode his master,
If the buttercups ate the cows,
If the cats had the dire disaster
To be worried, sir, by the mouse;
If mamma, sir, sold the baby
To a gypsy for half a crown;

Buttermorphosis
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

I recall the rural life of the butterfly
Extravagantly —that proud floating mass of wings.
Her wings flutter from sea to coast so eloquently,
Yet silent with the muteness of frightened breeze.
They are banners with buntings of newness — striped,
Spotted, arched, dotted.
Her flamboyant life history, reading it backwards,
Is an exhibition of time and cosseted patience . . . .
The winged one, aged and tried, schleps to the stirs of a narcoleptic pupa,
Hanging on the banisters of a dear larva who’s egged on to

A Fuzzy Fellow, Without Feet
by Emily Dickinson

173

A fuzzy fellow, without feet,
Yet doth exceeding run!
Of velvet, is his Countenance,
And his Complexion, dun!

Sometime, he dwelleth in the grass!
Sometime, upon a bough,
From which he doth descend in plush

Butterfly Blue
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

butterfly in blue
wafting skies we always knew
in orange-gold sun

redbirds sing farewell
a warm hour of green flowers
when still wind listens

to meadows and woods
minty lanes where beauty hides

Butterfly Beats
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Autumn is golden
mirrored in still glinting lake
Sunbeams through plum trees
Nature's so long symphony
when birds soar in sympathy

Tiffany skies chills
pink robin is still singing
to an empty hall
Last beats of butterfly wings

in wildflower touch and go ~
prancing in fragrance

sun's reached its zenith
the world has turned green again ~
with colors galore

Scattered to the wind
by Darius Ace

As the butterflies wings are clipped by the wind, it snaps and falls to earth, like a lotus flower, it floats in its own reflection before bursting into flames and the embers light up and burn out like a match towards the stars.... Never quite reaching the pockets of light that glitter in-between the lonely darkness, hoping to reconcile with the light that it yearns to be a part of. But like some lights, it fades away and turns to ash so easily, so fragile it breaks apart and scatters in different directions... Forever shattered into fragments that can never be whole again...
