Dear Butterfly, I dream of becoming you. Flying happily in the sunshine. Skipping from flower to flower. Spreading joy on gentle wings. I hope to emulate you. Restoring spirits. Soothing frayed nerves. Bringing delight to many admirers. Please stop for a brief visit to caress my hand with a fluttering kiss. Then you’re off again on a magical adventure. And I will follow.
Dear Butterfly, I adore you!
