DANCING WITH THE BUTTERFLY

BY ALLEN OKONKWO O.

Have you ever seen a butterfly
Sweet, lively and coloured bright
That dazzles the day and makes the sun shy
With its gentle and gaily flight
Which to every petal pilgrimage
Kissing buds from page to page
And folding its wings momentarily to pray
Blessing the Lord for such a lovely day?
Have you seen still, fairer than a sprite
A blessed one in her sweet delight
Whose bold smile will make the sun blush
And flowers musing all day, ‘O what a rush?!
There, I see her dancing with a butterfly
Spraying beauty as they merry by and by!

Allen graduated from the University of Lagos; he lives in Lagos; he manages his business in Lagos; he wrote this from Lagos; but he writes about this world, our world.
