he climbed the hillside as often he had done before
wanting to learn of nature and it's own law

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Before my Grandmother passed away (she was 99yrs young) she told me of a tragic story of her cousin Guy Falcon, who died accidentally on a school field trip. This is about his story and how we never really get over a child's passing. - As the inscription on the old brass plaque in the Hilton College dining room commemorates 'Far below was clearly the place where, on the morning of February 26,1922, young Guy ‘Dido’ Falcon, , ‘with laughter on his lips and innocence in his heart, chased a butterfly over the Gordon Falls and into eternity’'.
