Magical Butterflies

June 30, 2008
By Taila Hodge, Piketon, OH

Butterflies come in many sizes,
Shapes and colors, too;
Some of them are black and yellow,
Some are green or blue.
Butterflies are peaceful to watch
As they flutter from flower to flower;
I could watch them all day long,
Sometimes for hours and hours.
But never touch the butterflies,
There is a magical dust on their wings;
And if you wipe their dusting off,
You'll kill these beautiful things.
They have a short lifespan
As it is, you see;
So their dust lets them
Live life to its fullest
And when their time on
This Earth comes to an end;
Their spirit returns
To the forest;
And they become dust again.
