The Happy Butterfly


A happy butterfly sits on a flower
whiling away a lazy hour;
is it a wonder that he feels so gay
being in a spring garden all the long day?


Featured: a cross-stitch sampler
with not one but two butterflies.
But only one of them is happy.

  4. I am sorry to hear the other one's not happy, but since there are many beautiful flowers, probably it would cheer up?!

  7. Beautiful needlework! So you think one of the butterflies is unhappy... I think perhaps it is just looking down, lol... just my perspective though :) Lovely piece... :)

    1. I adore them as well. I read a story as a child that you could tell what spring will be like by the color of the first butterfly you see. I've been on the lookout ever since.
