She flies and flits and flutters all day,
Her magnificent colors,
A beautiful array,
She sips the nectar of flowers in a peculiar way,
And enjoys to chase others in blissful play.
Dear and free,
Great and gay,
Why do you always flip-flap away?
Whenever I'm near,
You leap up into the sky.
Your wings are silent without even a sigh.
You appear so small and fragile and mild,
But truly, inside you, you're exciting and wild!
I wish I could meet or become one of you someday,
For it must be great fun to flit-flutter and fly away.

Yes, I agree with Teri. There is some fearlessness here. I also think I recognize someone in the description...

I love the fearlessness with which you approach word usage. Great variety here, and some vivid images.
