The Butterfly

"The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough." Tagore


  1. What a beautiful remembrance! Here's my favorite poem by Ben Jonson and appropriate for the day I believe.

    The Noble Nature by Ben Jonson

    It is not growing like a tree
    In bulk, doth make Man better be;
    Or standing long an oak, three hundred year,
    To fall a log at last, dry, bald, and sere:
    A lily of a day
    Is fairer far in May,
    Although it fall and die that night—
    It was the plant and flower of Light
    In small proportions we just beauties see;
    And in short measures life may perfect be.
