To A Butterfly (second poem) Analysis

Author: Poetry of William Wordsworth Type: Poetry Views: 1105

Sponsored Links

I've watched you now a full half-hour,

Self-poised upon that yellow flower;

And, little Butterfly! indeed

I know not if you sleep or feed.

How motionless!---not frozen seas

More motionless! and then

What joy awaits you, when the breeze

Hath found you out among the trees,

And calls you forth again !

This plot of orchard-ground is ours;

My trees they are, my Sister's flowers;

Here rest your wing when they are weary;

Here lodge as in a sanctuary!

Come often to us, fear no wrong;

Sit near us on the bough!

We'll talk of sunshine and of song,

And summer days, when we were young;

Sweet childish days, that were as long

As twenty days are now.

My dad used to read this to me when i was really little. Now, rereading it, I realize that there is a deeper meaning and that it isn\'t just about catching butterflies. I love this poem

Hey its simply about his childhood innocence and how he sees the ignorance that the butterfly has to the rest of civilsation and he is hoping that by being able to have it live by him as a valued guest that some of these simple values will be rubbed off on him by sheer proxy

.: This poem is just lovely :.

Wow.this poem is beautiful...i needed it for a school english assignment...i just grabbed any old poem but then when i read through it i noticed how wonderful it was...thankyou...William WOrdsworth is DA BOMB!

Although this poem may be confusing in a few places i still undastand it alot...its about a girl?boy? and they are looking at a flower with a butterfly on it...then they think that its dead or sumthin and then they see that the wind picks it up...also later on they start walking round the 'orchard" and thinking back to when 'They' were young...all in all a wonderful poem...
