~::~ Tranquil Reveries ~::~

Fly away oh vibrant butterflies

Take me to a land of golden streams

Where tranquility dwells ‘neath cobalt skies

 

Where luminescent golden suns rise

Painting heavens in shades of peaches & creams

Fly away oh vibrant butterflies

 

A magical land of decadent moors lie

And evening brings iridescent moonbeams

Where tranquility dwells ‘neath cobalt skies

 

Where kaleidoscopic sights tantalize

Through opulent valleys swathed in gossamer sunbeams

Fly away of vibrant butterflies

 

Lilting music of dainty fairies mesmerize

O’er sapphire seas and blooming reams

Where tranquility dwells ‘neath cobalt skies

 

While a faint melodious scarlet tanager cries

I’d lay forever in these dreams

Fly away oh vibrant butterflies

Where tranquility dwells ‘neath cobalt skies
