Cute Butterfly

cute butterfly
Where are you flying
Downstream looking for
Flowers that bloom

Swing swing
On weak stalks
Aren’t your wings
Feel tired

Beautiful butterfly
Can I as well
Smell the flowers
That spreads the smell

While joking
All you approach
May I follow?
Go together

cute butterfly
Where are you flying
Downstream looking for
Flowers that bloom

Swing swing
On weak stalks
Aren’t your wings
Feel tired…

Aren’t your wings
Feel tired…

Planting the corn

Come with our friends
planting corn in our garden
take your hoe, take your plow
we work tirelessly

hoe, hoe, deep hoe
the loose soil of the corn I planted

give fertilizer to make it fertile
sow seeds regularly
the corn is big and full of fruit
of course useful for all

hoe, hoe, I’m happy
planting corn in our garden
