Butterfly in the Garden

Bringing a flash of colour
from the movement of its wings
the sight of them landing on the greens
oh what joy it brings

like windows of brightness
they appear on the green
having grown from caterpillars
mostly unseen

with wings translucent it passes by
it brings to the watcher a smile
who watches as in the air it flies
and stays in the garden a while

rainbows flutter as it moves round the green
stopping on a leaf where it can be seen
enjoying the sunshine whilst out in flight
and resting on plants at the dark of night

And while you see them flying about
their eggs have landed on plants – don’t shout
for caterpillars from eggs will grow
and soon new butterflies will be on show

Colourful insects that fly through the air
bringing a smile to those who are aware
keeping the flowers in garden a go
as they flutter round colours, to and fro
