I wish, I wish that I could be
A butterfly that flutters free
I’d hop from flower to flower
Sipping nectar by the hour
And spend my days in company
That looks and sounds the same as me.
I know my lifespan cannot last
Thus all I do must happen fast
Since most bug life accelerates
There is no time for friendly dates
And so this beauty that we see
Too soon before one knows shall flee !
