The butterfly

Once there was a butterfly,

Who loved to be up in the sky.

He liked a ring not silver or gold

in the hair of a maiden, none too old.


Her hair was bright, so bright can be.

It shone in the sunlight wonderfully.

The flowers on her head seemed like a crown.

They were red and yellow, but far from brown.


The butterfly was absolutely smitten

and became as friendly as a kitten.

The blossoms shone in the sunlight so fine.

He said to himself: Yes, these will be mine.


Before his feelings could drive him crazy,

He settled himself between a lilac and daisy.

But sadly the flowers were formed in cloth.

It was a tragedy that made him wroth.


The butterfly took off with a beat

To ride a white horse in a field of wheat

With the wind he had a wonderful race,

which lead him to a beautiful place.


He found himself in a meadow sweet

and cheerfully flapped in the heat.

He spied a sea of flowers beyond.

Its scent in the air of which he was fond.


The butterfly, as content as could be

realised in this place he could truly be free.

Said he, 'I wish to belong right here.'

And settled there for more than a year.


In spring you will find him above daisies a lot.

The story is true, you can believe me or not.

DankestMemes: Wow! First sentence and I was in love! Good story, and i only read the first chapter. Seriously, the writer needs to think of being a professional one day! Love it, and would recommend this to anyone!

EWP: Short, well-written and beautiful, that's how I would summarize the poetry of Rhyming Stories. Sometimes it hits a soft spot and tugs on your heart strings (Depending on your interpretation). I can't wait for the next Chapter.

Denise Frazier: I love the first chapter. I am looking forward to reading more. The author had me on the edge of my seat. Ready to read more. Thank you.

Tiara RaNa: I havent done reading it but i think the story is enjoyable to read so far. Hope it will be till the end.

Devika Keerthi: This book is well written and just when you think that you have predicted the next scene you are completely blown away by reality.

catchingflames_101: Great book so far! Keep up the good work! Definitely will recommend this to my friends!

Fantasyworld112: This is a great book, it should be published! There are a few spelling/grammar mistakes, but none of them take away from the story. You'll grow very attatched to the characters, and probably die along the way. Have fun!
