 Elsie`s Poetry



A butterfly can`t see the colour of its wings
And doesn`t know the joy that it brings
The colours are so vivid and bright
We can see them much to our delight.

The butterfly is just a beauty to behold
The sight is more precious than gold,
It is so delicate and so unpresuming
Yet its beauty is so all consuming.

So delicate and light it flutters about
A pleasure to watch without a doubt,
The butterfly remains ignorant of all this
And just flies about in ignorant bliss.

You will find some people to be the same
Their inner beauty they never proclaim,
Sometimes they are just totally unaware
And that is the beauty that they hold there.
