A Butterfly - Poem by Asif Andalib

A butterfly can dance
Every flower gives hint
In joyful kindergarten's lawn.
Morning-dews now one-by-one perish
Quenching rising sun's thirst.

    This is bitter sweet to me, starts off with a flourish but seems suggest the drying of the earth eventually...tyvm karen (Report) Reply
