Butterfly Butterfly

Mabel is a young Sussex poet who wrote and illustrated a beautiful poem as soon as she heard about our Poetry Competition. Mabel is a little too young to enter the competition, but we are delighted to share her poem here on our website. We hope that this will inspire her and other up-and-coming poets – young and old!

Butterfly Butterfly
We see you flutter by
as you fly we wave good bye.
Butterfly Butterfly you
fly so high in the sky!
Bye bye my pretty Butterfly

Mabel, who has just turned 7, is a big lover of nature and animals, and this really shines through her poem! Huge thanks to Mabel (and her mum) for sending us the poem and picture.
