Lying in the grass
I was gazing at the sky
It gently sat on my knee
And then as if teasing
It fluttered and flew away
The colors they mesmerized me
And broken was my reverie
The day dreaming halted
And I sprung to attention
I chased it till far
And then stumbled
Our little game of catch me
Wore well past the hour
And then when I was winded
Totally out of breath
I found a sweet spot
And sat down to rest
The elusive little butterfly
It came and settled
On my shoulder in peace
