A fragile winter butterfly
Flutters from the sky
So soft and yet her heart
Is cold and made of ice
But if I warm it
She will melt and die

    I enjoyed this poem showing personification, but more so the underlying message of a heart that dies upon warmth and affection. Interesting poem all around. Thanks. Thomas
