Joy Acey 2015

Today I took a walk
with a butterfly
and every step I took
it would flutter by.

Glad for the company
as I walked along the road.
That butterfly, he helped me,
by lightening my load.

    I don't know why, but watching nature always makes me feel happy, fanciful.  It lightens my spirit.  Is there something in your life that always makes you feel good?  Can you try writing a poem today bout things that make you happy?  Have fun writing.

Today I'll keep a smile on my face, because the world is a marvellous place.


  1. Very cute. I could see this -- "and every step I took it would flutter by."

  2. I am so impressed that you were able to accomplish all this for readers. Saluting you! I hope the arm is getting stronger. I saw a lovely butterfly today too. It almost rode off in a visitor's car. Glad it stayed near us instead.

  3. Your idea of a butterfly, or anything in nature, lifting our spirits is lovely, Joy. Hoping your arm isn't giving too much trouble. Thanks for the poem.
