Rare As Earth - Poem by Leanne Jarrin

Whole planets made of diamonds
May orbit distant suns
And gold and silver do abound
In the galaxies every one

But here on Earth are treasures
More dear than ore or stone
For as many butterflies that flutter here
Exist on Earth alone.

So, if we count a million
Butterflies in the air
The million here is all there is
In total anywhere!

Now think on the scope of The Infinite
As the Universe is oft described
And realize that within all of it
We have all the butterflies!
