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.
