‘I do not want to live in a world without butterflies.
Without the intricate eyes and velvety wings,
graceful splashes of color dancing on the breeze.
Airy, delicate keepers of hope.
Metamorphic symbols of change, growth, maturation.
… I do not want this world without the butterflies.
I could not bear the wailing of flowers.’
~Christina M. Ward,
‘A World Without Butterflies’
