POETRY: Little Butterfly

I’ve watched you now a full half-hour;
Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little Butterfly! Indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.

How motionless!- -not frozen seas
More motionless! And then
what joy awaits you, when the breeze
hath found you out among the trees,
and calls you forth again!

This plot of orchard-ground is ours;
My trees are for them, my Sister’s flowers;
Here rest your wings when they are weary;
Here lodge as in a sanctuary!

Come often to us, fear no wrong;
Sit near us on the bough!
We’ll talk of sunshine and of song,
And summer days, when we were young;
Sweet childish days, that were as long
As twenty days are now.
