Butterfly Toes

Christy Brumfield

 

 

Little Baby Butterfly Toes

Pitter-patting with majestic marvel,

Teetering with delicate delight.

 

Astonishing saffron wings atop

Lilac-encased perfection,

Fluttering tenderly toward liberty.

 

Too slender for hard-soled shells,

Too mature for slippery socks,

Your tipsy first steps

Threaded through my enchanted Heart.
