The song was publishe 1916.

It was inspired by Giacomo Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly
and contains a brief musical quote
from the act 2 duet Tutti i fior in the verse.

It was introduced in the Broadway show The Big Show,
which opened in August 1916,
and was sung in the show by Sophie Bernard.

The song has become a pop standard, recorded by many artists.

Poor Butterfly

Poor Butterfly
'Neath the blossoms waiting
Poor Butterfly
For she loved him so
The moments pass into hours
The hours pass into years
And as she smiles through her tears
She murmurs low

The moon and I
Know that he'll be faithful
I'm sure he'll come to me
By and by
But if he won't come back
Then I never sigh or cry
I just must die
Poor Butterfly
