‘9’

Nine Oh Nine How Divine

Nine My Love, Had Terrible Luck

Nine Oh Nine

Why Didn’t You Duck

When Seven Came And Ate You Up!

‘Butterflies In The Garden’

I see butterflies, butterflies in the garden

Butterflies feasting in the garden

Feasting on flowers in the garden

Butterflies flying near the waterfall

You see me coming and you soar through the sky

Trying to escape my grasp

I just want to touch your wings, and feel your love

Sweet butterflies come down to the grass where I stand and hope

That your colorful, fluttering wings will touch my skin.
