Treasure Island

Onalethuso Petruss Ntema

butterflies look so colorful


butterflies look so colorful
in their own color
and the blue sky of emptiness
looks beautiful when rain
clouds gather around
and soon rain come fall
over the land i walketh
to let the birds sing in joy
as the butterflies fly over
in their colorful color
to co-exist with man

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
