Fritillary Butterfly (1 of 1) Grunge Art blogMexican Fritillary Butterfly — Photo Artistry by kenne

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”

Some critic tried to put me down —
“Your poems lask the Basic Truth of Tao”
And I recall the old-timers
Who were poor and didn’t care
I have to laugh at him,
He misses the point entirely,
Men like that
Ought to stick to making money.
