Today I saw a White-winged butterfly
Fly silently past my window.
It caught my eye like when I was a boy.
Then my heart skipped a beat
when it returned for a treat in my garden
I had visions of happy carefree days filled with joy
Chasing butterflies through the fields around Navan Town
But now in the Autumn of my life
I was just happy to watch
as it fluttered from flower to flower
sucking petal after petal.
 When it had it's fill
it flew away just as silently as it came
I thought! I'd tell you so.

Michael " The Sheriff " Sheils.
