The day I caught the butterfly

I do not know on whose behest,
It yours or mine or ours the quest?
To feed upon this nectars seem
And feel the valid of this dream.

I swear I do not know the true,
A fantasy, or really you?
Did I capture the butterfly,
Or was the butterfly just I?

Alas, I've caught this dream this cast.
But on the very edge of last.
And once again I'll spin the thread,
Cocoon back to the living dead.

To dream once more with inner eye,
To dream I caught my butterfly.
To spawn once more a cast come true.
To dawn once more the real of you.

God grant the muse come true again,
And I care not how, where, or when.

I see the butterfly as it flutters by...
I think for sure it's you, dear Sy...

Elusive is the butterfly
you think you've caught
flying by
with net of gossamar
and words that care
but you cannot capture
free and fair

Another lovely poem, Sy

Seymour~

You set the butterfly to wing
with just the touch of your heart sing.
Graced the pages of the book
captured illusions with just one look.

Through minds eye all a'flutter
on wings of softest yellowed butter.
Beauty of elusive wing
will return to your heart's sing.

When upon the dream of cast
she will return to you at last.
Folding in the threads of dream
wrapping cocoon of ever seem.

*You, kind sir, are inspiration personified.
You cause me to float through flowers scent.
Thank you.

Nan, oh Nan the artisan,
Reminds me of a sweet yulan.
Pretty witty and always true.
I think that I"m in love with you.

Martie,
The butterfly came to me,
And spread her wings for me to see.
I touched her for an instants time.
And that's what set the bells to chime.

The butterfly that you have sought
I think most surely you have caught
With words of magical delight
How could this butterfly now take flight?!

So very lovely, my friend .....

I'll think of them when I'm in bed.
Love Sy

Dear sy, oh sy
To catch a butterfly
Spread her wings and up she'll fly
To try to reach the pale blue sky

You captured her here upon the page
And set the scene upon the stage
Your dream of that butterfly so real
captured my heart, which you did steal


 Keep all the windows of your mind open

Ah, the beauty of the butterfly-
Captured with your silver ink,
Wings sprayed in blues and pinks,
Fluttering with delicate grace,
Dancing through this passionate place.

Beautiful read!

Marge,
your comment was so good that I answered it in my mind and never put it in writing. Forgive me, *L* Sy

Balladeer, Again I answered you in thought and never put it down. Forgive me my friend.

Nate, Thank you for your thoughtful comment.
