Fly, butterfly, fly


Fly, butterfly, fly, but slowly fly;
Being drunk with astral dreams,
If you try, and fly high, sky high,
Wings will break, and you’ll die.

Fly, butterfly, fly, but not so high,
But low and slow, so you may know,
The stars you see are not so nigh,
yet if you try and fly high, you’ll die.

  1. The butterfly’s flight is a great metaphor for the pursuit of our dreams. It can be difficult to achieve what we most desire. When our dreams are unrealistic or ill-timed, flying too high can be painful — even fatal. Who though is to say what is unrealistic? There’s the rub.
