a butterfly wee

you are that butterfly,
I always wished to be
in the solemn solitude
of the place where now I be,

yours are the wings
upon which I'd like to fly
as far and further as a butterfly

but take care of my weight,
tis bound to be a strain

that, I can't help
but my aerofoil shall help air to flow
will help reduce my weight
of course that you know

your poetry is like music

even my deaf ears
pick up the string
as in it snows
here in spring....

soft music begins....

Wesley has said it, an extreme case of sentimentality:-

Acrostically speaking
Loved reigns Neopoet.

Mind you there is still Ian.T

Fragrant powder clings to their wings
If only the butterfly could sing
It does, It does the wind did sigh
Its colour sings as it does fly.

You have your own wings young Bard, that you have not yet learned to fly is just a question of time, I have to go write some new words about a Desert and time, so I shall bid thee God's speed,
Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

What a lovely poem, Loved. Your butterfly allegory is spot on. Love the clarity of this yet it provides wonderful vistas for the reader's imagination.
Well done; I loved it.

My mind's writing cheques my body can't cash.

i shall also compose one on fish,
though you wouldv;e have read
by now my milt...
