BUTTERFLIES FLYING OVER THE MOUNTAIN

Poem I

No one knows
Where they’re flying to

And the snow falls
over the butterflies

Through the seasons
The butterflies fly

Each and every season
The butterflies fly

They fly to different places
Migrating

Each season
To new places

Butterflies migrate below pine trees
And under them

Poem II

Different animals migrate
Over land and sea

They migrate every season of the year
Dolphins do it

Butterflies do it
Birds do it

Seals do it
Every animal in the ocean migrates

Fish do it
Starfish do it

Gorillas do it
Each season they just migrate every year

It makes me feel like
I’m migrating too

My home in the city
My home in the mountains

I go from one place to another
Just the way the animals do
