Here’s a poem by 
Terry Newbury


BUTTERFLIES


Have you ever
Wondered, just
How do the
Dainty winged
Insects meet?
Perhaps the secret
Is their erratic
Flight. After all,
Flying as they
Do

They are bound
To meet another
Sooner, rather than
Later.
They have, by
Our standard, so
Little time to
Meet and do
The necessary. before
Sunlit days die
As will they.

So when you
Next see the
Fluttering beauty.
Do not fear,
For not very
Far away will
Be it's heart’s
Desire, getting
Closer and closer.
Ooops! Sorry! Oh! 
It’s you.

How to Enter

#Gold

 

Almighty gold! whose magic charms dispense

Worth to the worthless, to the graceless grace,

To cowards valour, and to blockheads sense,

And to the withered maid a Hebe's face,

Poor love exiled, thou sitst on Hymen's throne;

Thou rulest the court, the senate, and the bar;

Henry Moore (1732-1802)
