To Gardens Yet Unknown

Beneath the calm and quiet sky

two butterflies go drifting by -

as yellow as the sun.

A wild flower bends a bit

as one has temporarily lit.

The other joins in fun.


Then off again they wing with task

but yet, so playfully I ask,

Are they that much in love?

They look to be, or so it seems,

alive inside their unique dreams

which float so high above.


It's if they taunt, it's if they tease

my little world of memories,

that happened long ago.

Those treasured thoughts of yesteryear

still seem so recent, seem so near,

I'll never let them go.


Their presence here is so worthwhile

I find myself with pleasant smile,

though I sit all alone.

Then finally, they both take flight

to other places out of sight,

to gardens yet unknown.
