Sunday Scribblings #358: Monarch

Monarch butterfly,
with orange and yellow wings,
I, too, want to fly.

Dancing in the sky,
graceful, soaring, pretty thing,
flitting, floating by.

Please, don’t be so shy!
Hold my breath long as I can.
Soon you’ll say goodbye.

Monarch butterfly,
silently you spread your wings,
daring me to fly.
