Do You See What I See?

Butterfly, the wind blows sea-ward,

strong beyond the garden-wall!

Butterfly, why do you settle on my

shoe, and sip the dirt on my shoe,

Lifting your veined wings, lifting them?

big white butterfly!

 

Already it is October, and the wind

blows strong to the sea

from the hills where snow must have

fallen, the wind is polished with

snow.

Here in the garden, with red

geraniums, it is warm, it is warm

but the wind blows strong to sea-ward,

white butterfly, content on my shoe!

 

Will you go, will you go from my warm

house?

Will you climb on your big soft wings,

black-dotted,

as up an invisible rainbow, an arch

till the wind slides you sheer from the

arch-crest

and in a strange level fluttering you go

out to sea-ward, white speck!

~D.H. Lawrence
