I dreamt of a butterfly once

with white wings

and a cheshire smile

 

It beckoned me

with slow flaps

 

I could have saw each flutter

 

It laid atop my shoulder

with knowing eyes

a forlorn smile

and she said to me

 

You wish to be free

like I wish to live

 

Oh my sovereign days

have a limit

yet you are immense

 

I know not why

you wish to be free
