~ Something Unusual ~
 
 
I saw something very unusual today
A butterfly walking across the ground
With each step its wings opened and closed
Why isn't it flying around?
 
It walked and walked across the ground
And made its way slowly towards me
But then I saw another one
There's two, oh no, there's three!
I know they land upon the ground
And in nearby trees on leaves
But to have three walk right up to me
It's really hard to fathom or believe!
 
They walked all around where I was sitting
Until a bird landed and scared them away
Another unusual thing took place
This bird decided to stay.
 
It sat right there and stared at me
Then tilted its head back to sing
A beautiful sound came lilting out
Then it looked a me and spread its wings.
For the longest time it sat and basked
In the warmth of the afternoon sun
The butterflies were perched on a nearby leaf
They didn't seem afraid of anyone.
 
We all enjoyed this afternoon
When the butterflies decided to take a walk
And when the bird joined right in
No one got upset or even squawked.
