Butterfly Feeder Poem (By:MrsPackRat-GW)

Oh butterfly do stop and rest
I made this perch for you to test.
I've put out some fruit for you to eat
in hopes that you and I might meet.
I love to watch your graceful glide
and see your colors in the sky.
So have yourself a little retreat
while I admire you as you eat.
