Do butterflies ever sleep?

Do butterflies ever sleep?
Dr Abe V Rotor
Butterfly by Night and Day by Anna Rotor c. 1996  

Do butterflies ever sleep? A child asked me, a grown up.
        Yes they do, I answered;
Do butterflies rise from their sleep and play with the moon?
        Yes, they do, I answered;
Do butterflies change colors during the day and at night?
        Yes, they do, I answered.
Do butterflies ever get lonely and sad - and then - die?
        Yes, they do, I answered.
Do butterflies return the next morning and meet the sun? 
       Yes they do, I answered. 

I have been a grown up for so long to know butterflies.~
