Fluttering petals

Kissed by the gentlest wind

Graceful butterfly


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Monarch’s Reign

Monarch Butterfly

By D. R. DiFrancesco


Mandarin,white, obsidian glory,

Exquisite majesty soaring,

Graceful feathery flutter,

Whisper silent utter.


Fairy tale grace inspired,

Marathon distance flier,

Born in natures swaddle,

Angelic infants toddle.


Innocent beauty undercover,

Lives to boast a princely lover,

Short lived romance symphony plays,

‘Til they part on dying days.


Crown jeweled natures elegance,

Wings rhythm heavenly trance,

King and Queen exalted royalty,

Nobility commands subjects loyalty.


Behold honors modest atonement,

Loveliness granted in its moment,

Rembrandt’s stroke to you would pale,

God’s paragon winged angel you sail.
