Butterfly -- S Thomas Ansell

To round off the theme, a guest poem from Uma Raman
(Poem #563) Butterfly
 Down the air
     He falls sun-lazy
 Debonair
     Upon a daisy;

 Now he drifts
     To fall between
 Snowy rifts
     Of scented bean;

 And where petals
     Lift in flight,
 There he settles
     Hid from sight.
-- S Thomas Ansell
The real test....
Read the poem out aloud. The musicality and rhyme actually make you
drunk as you follow this tippler's descent.

Uma

Dear friends,

That was a very beautiful poem. I can see the butterfly with all its beauty
gentling descending amidst the peace of a garden and the flowers. I wonder
who is this poet, what else has he or she written? Can Umaraman enlighten me
who is woefully ignorant?
