Of butterflies we ponder
A short and magnificent existence
From cocoon then to wind
Nature's way of "I Love You's"

Traveling from tree to bush
Where creatures give chase
A Contribution to struggle
Insurance of a tomorrow

Joy and tears pass away
Testifying to existence
Sometimes things break
With the knowledge that speaks --
In nature

-- James W. Collins
