I started out writing this poem for a competition. I didn’t win. But I did get honourable mention.

The butterfly spread out its wings and plunged into the light

All around it flowers bloomed and called the end of night

The summer months were humid so and winter was a trying time

But with the arrival of spring came the chance for another life

In the far reaches of the valley the stream passed lazily by

As, in the forest, the trees shook their branches with pride

The animals all clustered round awaiting their drink of life

The waterfall gushed down the rocks to the rescue of the wildlife

The season of life is spring again one feels it in the air

So never forget that after a gruelling winter, spring will always be there.
