A Butterflies Dance

Happy Poems Contest Winner 

Lace gilded wing'lets flit 'n fly
with Summer's warming gentle breeze.
Enchant a child's wide yearning eye ...
bright soaring daydreams happ'ly please.

Wisp, sparkling gems within my sight,
lace gilded wing'lets flit 'n fly.
Such joyous laughter; sheer delight ...
yield hopeful wishes, by and by.

Blush rosy cheeks so very shy,
as foot'lings dance 'pon twitching nose!
Lace gilded wing'lets flit 'n fly,
hands reaching high on tippy toes.

Step gingerly 'long daisied hill ...
soon, music whispers lullaby.
Cease never, such wondrous play! still...
lace gilded wing'lets flit 'n fly.
