With Grace And Sway

Butterfly, butterfly, with grace and sway
expose to the world your gentle way
delightful wisp in a gentle breeze
lifts you higher with graceful ease 
rapture image romance inspires
Gives rise to my heart’s desire
Float ever so gently back down to earth
enlighten the world of your glorious worth
meekly flutter from flower to flower
angelic image does strangely  empower
sun’s rays enhance the beauty of your majestic wings
gently pulling and raising wondrous voices to sing
magical moments that Mother Nature did create
drawing a pause; wonderful images to stimulate
though tempest storms may came you way
your graceful wings lift’s you above the fray
when they seek to bring you harm
you float away with grace and charm
O' what a sad day- the tears I  fight
when you flew away-- out of my sight
beneath a blazon sky birthed by flames
This beautiful Monarch thus so named.
