Butterfly With Midnight Wings

Butterfly With Midnight Wings

The moon shimmers upon the lake,
A midnight found in dark,
The bench cold and lonely,
Though the ripples do embark,

The frogs immersed in water,
Sing forgotten songs,
Crickets are the symphony,
Correcting all the wrongs,

Fireflies light the stage,
And hum softly to the tune,
As the dancers fly in flutterby,
To entertain the moon,

Moths flap their beaters,
And warm the seats to show,
The butterfly with midnight wings,
In all grace was to glow,

Fluttering her wings,
The world stopped in awe,
A spectacle of beauty,
Of which was to applaure,

The morning broke the dancing,
As warmth stole the dark,
Unhidden from the eyes,
And subsided from their hark,

Leaving all but ripples,
The moon now unseen,
No music and no dance,
No knowing of what been.

    I'm truly, for the first time, jealous of someone else's poem. Amazing piece of work. I was engulfed with imagery and simply reading the poem soothed the very depth of my inner most self. I am not kidding, i love this life giving piece of art.

    I think the best two things about this poem was the rhymes and the imagery you created. I can't quite choose between the first and third stanzas, and so I'll jsu have to say like them both equally and that they are both my favorite stanzas.

    I love it. though the last three stanzas werent as good as the rest... I'm not saying they're bad. >.< I'm just saying i dont like them as much as the rest. I felt like the rhyme scheme was messed up. that's the only reason.

    other than that, I totally dig it. nicely written. 5/5
