The Butterfly Man
THE BUTTERFLY MAN
Drawing from Tomasz Rut's private collection
The butterfly man exists
He has the most beautiful wings,
He has taken me on a trip of life
Showing me the beauty of the world.
Imagine how marvelous everything is
When you fly above the flowers,
And No, I'm not 'Nils on the goose'
But I do love the amethyst!
How extraordinary his story is
As once he lost his wings
Like a fallen angel that God punished
He completed his penance
And paid for the world suffering.
The new cocoon is ready now
And astonishing wings are spreading out,
He's not an ordinary butterfly man
How many have you seen?
And what's more special about him,
From all the 'Leda Nova' he chose me.
Yes, the butterfly man does exist!
To touch my nose,
To touch humankind
And you'll see him in the spring
Dancing like a happy King
How could I not love the amethyst?
