Помню я, бабочка билась в окно.
  Крылышки тонко стучали.
Тонко стекло, и прозрачно оно.
  Но отделяет от дали.

В Мае то было. Мне было пять лет.
  В нашей усадьбе старинной.
Узнице воздух вернул я и свет.
  Выпустил в сад наш пустынный.

Если умру я, и спросят меня: —
  В чём твоё доброе дело? —
Молвлю я: Мысль моя майского дня
  Бабочке зла не хотела.
