Fly Away Butterfly

Heather was outside in her garden. She was enjoying the beautiful fragrance of her roses. She was very pleased with how her garden turned out this year. 

She was going to get the garden hose and water her garden but out of the corner of her eye, she noticed a beautiful butterfly. She stepped back and watched it. 

The butterfly was a pretty orange and black colour and Heather noticed it had little orange dots along the edge of its wings. 

“You are the most beautiful butterfly I have ever seen,” said Heather. 

The butterfly landed on her rose bush and stayed there for a few minutes. Heather took her cell-phone out of her pocket and was just going to take a picture of the butterfly on her rose bush when all of a sudden, Heather heard a crow in the distance. 

“Caw! Caw!” called the crow, who landed right beside Heather’s rose bush. 

“Oh no you don’t!” screamed Heather, seeing the crow eyeing the butterfly. 

Heather picked up a twig and poked it at the crows tummy. Soon, the crow gave up and flew away. 

“Good riddance,” said Heather. 

Once the butterfly knew the crow was gone, she flew away. 

“Fly away butterfly,” said Heather, watching the butterfly fly away. “Be safe.” 

Heather was so happy that the crow didn’t get the butterfly. She knew that she wouldn’t be able to protect the butterfly forever but at least she did protect it for just that one day.


Moral of this Story:

  • Try to protect things that are vulnerable.
  • Example: Heather protected a beautiful butterfly from a crow.
