Kids Poems : Good-by, Butterfly

Discussion in 'Quotes & Poems' started by Yours, May 13, 2016.

  1. I turned to look. O memory!
    Keep fadeless all my life for me
    That picture with its lightsome grace
    Of floating curls and winsome face,
    That backward looked along the fence,
    Where, rising higher, floating thence,
    A gaudy thing of summer day
    Had charmed my boy upon his way.

    From flower to flower his steps it led,
    Waited a moment, then it fled;
    He thought it all in sportive jest,
    And joined its course with happy zest,
    But, missing me, he passed it by
    "Good-by, butterfly, good-by."

    Dear child, may all thy pleasures be
    As innocent as this, to thee;
    May'st thou with loving heart still heed
    The way thy parents' footsteps lead;
    Should life's temptations rainbow bright,
    Arrest thy steps, allure thy sight,
    May'st thou say then, without a sigh,
    "Good-by, butterfly, good-by."
