The Butterfly

Hyoin Rhee

Grade 12, George Mason High School in Falls Church VA

"This is a waltz that depicts the movement and life of a butterfly. The delicate and sweet melody of the first section illustrates the peaceful and beautiful nature of a colorful butterfly. Then, the second section changes into a minor key and it portrays some dangers and hardships the butterfly faces before the calmness comes again. In the last section, the piece goes back to the original major key and the melody is developed to resemble a lullaby to mark the end of the butterfly's journey."
