Angels on Earth

Angels on Earth

A Poem by The handsome stranger

A butterfly, how wonderfully agile,

 

             Yet tiny, light, and so terribly fragile

 

Sees each day as a new chance

 

            To wake, to fly and in a way, to dance

 

Worry never crosses her mind

 

            She is remembered most for being kind

 

Very lightly she makes her way

 

            Until she sleeps at the end of each day

 

Such strength, such power, such humility

 

            What an example she is to me.

This poem seems to fly. I love the way you show both the butterflies' fragility and it's amazing strength.
What an awesome Creator we have!

See! That was beautiful; I told you that you could write! Just like the butterfly in the poem, the words and format in the poem are very delicately written. Thank you so much for writing and sharing it; it was simply lovely. :) Flora.
