Whence do you come?
"I know not, I ask not,
Nor ever had a home."
Where do you go?
"Where the sun shines,
And where the buds grow."
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.
