Precious Gifts ~ An Inspirational Poem

Many of our children
Will play pretend today.
So I went out and found this poem
It has a lot to say

It is not very long
A very nifty website
For guidance we all seek

I hope you like my intro poem
To another I find keen
This old man just wanted to say
Happy Halloween

Precious Gifts
Author Unknown

Yesterday a butterfly
Came floating gently through the sky.
He soared up through the atmosphere
Then drifted close enough to hear.

I said, "I'd love to fly with you
And sail around the way you do.
It looks like it would be such fun
To fly up toward the summer sun.

But I have not your graceful charm.
I haven't wings, just these two arms.
I've been designed to walk around.
My human feet must touch the ground.

Then magically he spoke to me
and told me what his wish would be.

He said, "What I'd love most to do
Is walk upon God's Earth with you,
To squish its mud between my toes
Or touch my finger to my nose.

I'd love just once to walk around
With human feet to touch the ground,
But I have not two legs that swing,
I haven't arms, just these two wings."

And so we went our separate ways
In wonder and surprise.
For we'd both seen God's precious gifts
Through someone else's eyes.

  3. Hi Brian,
    I'd love to welcome you to my family of followers as well.
    Hope you're having a great time!

  4. Brian, I love butterflies, I think they are one of God's most beautiful creations and I loved your butterfly poem. Don't we all sometimes wish to change places with someone else? I like the way you compared the 2 points of view. When all is said and done we find we are glad to be just who/what God made us to be. Everything is beautiful in its own way. Great job. Patty
