I’ve watched you now a full half-hour;
Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little Butterfly! Indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless! – not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!
~William Wordsworth, “To a Butterfly”
It is so lovely to sit and watch the butterfly going from one flower to the next. It’s so calming as you feel the cool breeze of fall on it’s way. You almost forget all the troubles that had you so tense, and you take pause and you breath and you say, it will be ok.
