A wild gust blew away a dazzling paper rose
Away from her vase to a garden of roses
The paper flower scorned the real ones
Said your colours are so dull and bland.
All of a sudden a butterfly came flying
The paper rose told him “Come to me!”
“For I am the most beautiful one here.”
The butterfly sighed, “Yes, but you have no honey!”
