remorse | karin taylor

Unfortunately, in my big rush to make an appointment on time yesterday, I hit three yellow butterflies….this is my sorry tale in poem format:

Butter yellow, little wings
Flutter high and low
Oh, if I could, I’d follow you
To where it is you go!

In my rush to get somewhere
We crashed into each other
Tiny wings all broke n bruised
fall lifeless in the gutter

Not just one, but two and three
I knocked down all your brothers
You wouldn’t think, you couldn’t know
I am a butterfly lover

Chances are, that heaven now
has cleaved yourselves unto her
I hope you are in painless bliss
and glorified all over

My heart it broke and shattered
when I crashed into your wings
I took from you, the song you sang
of nature’s precious things

At least you go as three, not one
Perhaps you’ll feast on honey
If heaven’s as they say it is
Your bliss will be my comfort
