    Hey , I thought you were writing your own version of We Didnt Start the Fire, it does kinda rhyme that way !

    Its great to read something by you !

    I think Tiger, Puffin n Peacock are common in India. I used to love the black one best. Of course its been years and years since I have chased after a butterfly.

  3. Thank you. Glad you liked it. Its a list set to rhyme or cadence.

      I did follow the butterflies again, and it was a pleasure.

      Children know something that grown up forget.. how to find pleasure in simple things.
