4.  The Butterfly Song  (Mariposa)

 

Mariposa! Papillon! Fairies in the morning,

Bringing joy to everyone. Springtime is a-borning!


Cloak of morning, Lady's Touch chasing out the sorrow

Gaily lifting Winter's clutch, joy upon the morrow!

Mariposa! Papillon! Fairies in the morning,

Bringing joy to everyone. Springtime is a-borning!


Monarch of the wind and sky, dancing through the bowers

Softly blessing as you fly, lover of the flowers!

Mariposa! Papillon! Fairies in the morning,

Bringing joy to everyone. Springtime is a-borning!


To and fro on painted wings, dancing through the breezes

Spring and Summer now to sing, wand'ring as it pleases!

Mariposa! Papillon! Fairies in the morning,

Bringing joy to everyone. Springtime is a-borning!


Taking wishes to the sky, silent song a-singing,

Rainbow wing-ed butterfly, blessings are you bringing!

Mariposa! Papillon! Fairies in the morning,

Bringing joy to everyone. Springtime is a-borning!

 

Note:  "Mariposa" is the Spanish word for butterfly and "Papillon" is how it is said in French!
