Diaphanous Delight | Peter Matthews

Flittering, fluttering, butterfly wings

One of life’s wonders such beautiful things

Alighting on flowers and floating on high

Painting new portraits way up in the sky

Some look like tigers and some look like eyes

There’s so much to see as the butterfly flies

You may be surprised at the height they can soar

Six thousand metres, perhaps a bit more

They can’t be surpassed as a creature of flight

When they bring so much pleasure, such joy, and delight!


Peter Matthews, a country boy at heart, lives with his wife in the suburbs of Nottingham, England.  His greatest achievement is that he has aged fairly gracefully but has avoided growing up.  Peter has written poetry from the age of sixteen and blogs regularly at www.pollymermaid.wordpress.com.
