Poem About Butterflies

I was always fascinated by butterflies. You can't really see their emotions, but I choose to think that they are happy creatures. I was inspired to write this poem from all the butterflies who live in my garden. They will always be my favorite insect of all. :)

A Butterfly Life

©

Published: June 2014

As the caterpillar sleeps inside its cocoon
Like a baby wrapped in her blanket
She waits and waits until she blooms
Into a beautiful new life
With wings of deep sapphire blue
She takes her first flight, soaring high
Into the clear cornflower sky
She flutters over to perch on the pink flowers
To sip the sweet nectar of pure gold
But this butterfly is daintier than a ballerina
Like a leaf in the wind, but controlled
So delicate and fragile
But so free, so free this butterfly will always be.

This poem caught my attention at the very last moment and I had given it to my 10 yr old daughter for memorizing within an hour for her elocution contest and to my surprise she was selected from her class.

This was a touching poem. My daughter had an assignment at school for when she had to bring in an animal poem. She choose this poem, I read over it, and it touched me, and my sweet daughter.
