Butterfly, Butterfly - English Children's Songs - England - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image


Here's a slightly different version from The Little Mother Goose (1912), illustrated by Jessie Willcox Smith:

Butterfly, butterfly, whence do you come?
I know not, I ask not, I never had home.
Butterfly, butterfly, where do you go?
Where the sun shines, and where the buds grow.



Recited by Lisa.
