Oh butterfly sailing ‘gainst the wind
Painted sails unfurled you fight your way
Yet why to go just now? Magnets make your mind
On air as thick as soup, Summer stirs the day
Straight ahead the mountain first then tomorrow
Noon will warm your feints, your colors bright will dry
Then up you draft a silky breeze, hitch your skirt and go
Gliding on your Soul, on lace designed by sky
She bobs her tail, antennae magic takes her South
Bobbing as the currents give her pass
Time is lost to distant worlds, so we hear by word of mouth
Will we see you again? Before we do the looking glass?
See the firefly lights? Signal you’re home success.
Once a boy’s dream, maybe again we’ll roam?
After electric and computers, unplug and call it progress,
You alone before the count of time, gave us Summer afternoon.
