Butterflies

Love?

What did I know of love?

As a young man-

Or rather, an old boy-

A teen, then twenty-something

Scarcely versed in love

Trying in conceit

To show wisdom

Without experience

Like capturing a butterfly in a jar

And pretending I knew

Everything about butterflies.

 

***Ever go back and read things you wrote when you were young and foolish and suddenly  realize just how young and just how foolish you were?  I sure have!  😉
