I Tried to Catch a Butterfly

I tried to catch a butterfly
I know I cannot tell a lie

So here is how the story goes
It is a long one; it ends at your toes

The butterfly flew over a large plain
And landed in a horse's mane

Then it soared over the trees
I had to protect myself from angry bees

The butterfly fluttered over a flower
Just then came a heavy rain shower

It flew over a pasture and rested on the fence rail
While up from the ocean dove a large whale

The whale greeted us happily, then returned to the water
But not before introducing us to her father

In the end, the butterfly flew away
I'll just catch it some other day

Creative Writing - Odes - 3/21/14

Ode to Bacon

 

Salty, crispy and crunchy

You are my Sunday morning treat

I love the way you pair perfectly with donuts

And bring people of all kinds together

Oh, lovely bacon, what would the world do without you?
