The other day I happened to meet the most beautiful little girl,
She was very tan and had golden hair and almost silver eyes
She must have been about six.
Her silver eyes became moon shaped and lit up when she spotted my face painting booth.
This little soul was so readable that she seemed like a character from a novel
She hopped into the face painting chair and declared she wanted to be a butterfly.
I painted her little face blue and pink and gave her silver sparkles,
she stared into my sunglasses the entire time acting as if they were a mirror-
She watched herself change into a butterfly
I was entirely fascinated, and she seemed to be as well.
It was a precious moment during a marvelously sun-drenched day.
