Butterfly Afternoon

Updated on June 24, 2017


The Roses are blooming just fine

The whole flower garden is awake

After a Winter's sweet slumbering

The fish are all jumping in the lake


Brown deer feeding in the meadows

Canadian Geese are flying overhead

A noisy woodpecker greets the noon

Ushering in bright April to warm June





Butterfly's wings are now all a flutter

Gathering nectar amid late day's due

Beautiful clouds float high overhead

Like a crystal cathedral of every hue


Grey squirrels all play in the tree tops

Chasing each other from limb to limb

Grasshoppers hopping in tall grasses

Green frogs croak as a joke on a whim





Bees all are humming in the glade

Humming bird's looking for shade

Garden spider's on his escapade

Crickets begin evening's serenade


This butterfly evening is not so bad

As I take my daily walk I am so glad

Absorbing this deep within my soul

It makes life to feel so free and whole

      I agree, whonu. There's nothing more vibrant and uplifting than the sights and sounds of nature going about its business.

      Beautiful. Spring is my favorite time of the year. A type of re-birthing for mother nature. Your descriptions of nature and blooming are wonderful!

      Awesome. As I get up before the dawn I am greeted with one billion bird songs. What a great time of year.
