Mariposa made a flight

Upon a gentle zephyr;

She came unto a house of light

And there her new friend met her.


She brought the birthday girl delight

And by helping her to see

That each of us do shine so bright

As we’re meant to be.


So know always that Elohim

Created you in love;

And that you are His treasure and

He sees you from above.


Also realize you're a gift

To everyone you know--

And that you are an objet d’art*

Everywhere you go!
