Two Butterflies

I saw two butterflies today

Dancing ‘round a flower,

Lighting briefly for a while

Cavorting for an hour.


‘Round and up and down

They flew, surrounded in this bower,

Until, embraced, they lit upon

A branch above the flower;


And there they stayed for half the day,

The two had one become.

When shadows grew two, parted, flew

From garden and the flower.
