"The Butterfly"

It seems like only yesterday
I was wrapped in a cocoon.
I waited very patiently
knowing freedom
would come soon.

And now I fly upon the wind
with colors of every hue.
My wings glistening in the sun
from the early morning dew.

And now I'll fly away!
To dance upon the flowers
yes I'm free to play!

What a beautiful sight,
a miracle in flight.
Now I am free today.
And I will fly away!
