    Preserved butterflies
    That when touched by
    A brilliant sun ray
    Turn to mother-of-pearl,

    beautiful description of butterflies.

    This is a beautiful, delicate, airy and lovely poem.
    But if you like this you must read his Nocturne III., a masterpiece of not only Latin American Literature but of Universal Literature. A love poem with the heartfelt pain and sadness of the Poem of Poems, Annabelle Lee.
    You will find it right here, amazingly well translated.

    There the azure
    Daughters of the air,
    Mercurial wings
    Now fixed forever,
    Beautiful butterfly poem. Thanks.
