Photo: “Monarch In May” by Kenneth Dwain Harrelson


(a children’s poem)


Butterfly lands upon a mirror,

sees himself from front to rear,

hairy body, skinny legs,

“It seems I’m made of pegs and bags –

we butterflies are ugly things!”

Alas, he cannot see his wings,

how elegant he is from here

where we see him above the mirror,

so with his beauty still unknown

the monarch flies back to his throne.
