Butterflies Quotes, Quotations, and Sayings
7 Butterflies Quotes
Far out at sea,--the sun was high,
While veer'd the wind and flapped the sail,
We saw a snow-white butterfly
Dancing before the fitful gale,
Far out at sea.
Richard Hengist Horne

I'd be a butterfly, born in a bower,
Where roses and lilies and violets meet.

Quotes , Source: I'd be a Butterfly
With the rose the butterfly's deep in love,
A thousand times hovering round;
But round himself, all tender like gold,
The sun's sweet ray is hovering found.

Gray sail against the sky,
Have you a dream for going.
Or are you the blind wind's blowing?
Quotes , Source: A Sail at Twilight
The gold-barr'd butterflies to and from
And over the waterside wander'd and wove
As heedless and idle as clouds that rove
And drift by the peaks of perpetual snow.

Much converse do I find in thee,
Historian of my infancy!
Float near me; do not yet depart!
Dead times revive in thee:
Thou bring'st, gay creature as thou art!
A solemn image to my heart.
