A Butterfly by C.V. Riley









A Butterfly

by C.V. Riley


                        Lazily flying
Over the flower-decked prairies, West;
Basking in sunshine till daylight is dying,
And resting all night on Asclepias’ breast;
                    Joyously dancing,
                    Merrily prancing,
Chasing his lady-love high in the air,
                    Fluttering gaily,
                    Frolicking daily.
Free from anxiety, sorrow, and care!
