Butterflies in the Woods

Butterflies in the Woods 
Painting and Poem by Dr Abe V Rotor
For Candido and Socorro Raquepo on their 
50th Wedding Anniversary, Nov 30, 2017
           Butterflies in the Woods in acrylic AVR 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. ~
