His Perfect Art - Poem by Ernestine Northover

Glimpse the beauty of a butterfly's wings,
As if inspired by heavenly angelic paintings,
Soft as delicate silk, they are thus displayed,
Dusted with subtle colours, which can only fade
Once life on this earth is at a sombre end.
One thing in this great world we cannot mend,
When heaven reclaims what it owned, from the start,
These wings designed by God. His perfect art.

    God has created so much beauty that man can only try to emulate. The wings of a butterfly is but one perfect example. A PERFECT poem!
