to me this poem is talking about a relationship. either a friendship or possibly even more. it talks about how two people go on adventures toghther over the years, sharing the same beliefs and then how they go in their own directions but forever carrying their memories they had together.

i think that she is the butterfly and the other one is her lover and they want to go and explore new places together

two butterflies went out at noon
This is a great poem, but I also think that there's a deeper meaning, other than just two butterflies. to me, two butterflies could be any person, any creature. The significance of using butterflies as an example is that the wording comes naturally. imagine a poem like that with
"two people went out at noon to go on an adventure onto the shining sea." nope, that's not a poem people would want to read, most likely. but the main thing is that they're going on an adventure, surprising different places. in reality it has nothing to do with the shining sea.
this is probably one of the most beautiful poems I have ever heard.
