The Village Butterfly

November 24, 2020 - Heart matters, In Love
The Village Butterfly

She flies around in the day time
Spreading her wings laced with blush patterns
She walks as If she’s dancing
You can tell when she walks in
The young men raise their antenna, they become alive

When I say she’s the fascination of the village
I refer to the chief wanted her for himself
And the village priest wished he hadn’t married yet
Because he would throw in his cards and his prayers
To pursue the dotted butterfly for domestication

Women from the fields of fine grade green-yellow maize love and hate her
They love her because she’s the model of the woman from the hill country
And they hate her because their husbands mention her in their dreams
She is as likeable as the migrating eagle from Europe
And she seems to have been born with her tank of charm full

Her dress sparkles as much as the stars in the harvest nights
Her industry is blessed and cloaked with delightful pleasure
Like the flower bed at the chiefs residence, she is well trimmed
When young men see her they are given a freshness in their youth
They plot to beat each other just to walk her to the river

The age of the caterpillar is long gone
She’s the model of the independent damsel
For she wants someone they could hop together
Hop from one petal to another
And sample the nectar with a straw in the western sunshine
