|Alighting from one flower to another,
They sip the sweet nectar.
Behold such gorgeous colors bright
Fluttering in the sunlight
A glittering array
Of nature's jewelry.
|Daisies abound with the spangled fritillary
And on thisles, the painted lady;
A viceroy drinks from the ruby asters,
While black-eyed susans attract the skippers.
|From earthbound caterpillar to graceful butterflies free
Such an astounding transformation
Has captured repeatedly
Many a people's imagination.
