Painting and Poem by Dr Abe V Rotor
For Candido and Socorro Raquepo on their
50th Wedding Anniversary, Nov 30, 2017
They come fluttering in a swarm in Spring,
In the magic of metamorphosis;
They come in Autumn when trees are bare,
In the mystery of symbiosis.
The blue sky and brown earth are but one,
The woods in harmonious unity;
Creatures all, big and small, to freedom,
Where peace reigns in diversity.
Where does man come in, what’s his part?
In a thousand ways we can only guess;
Would Nature be better with his genius?
Or simply his awe and reverence. ~
