If I were given wings,
I would rather be a butterfly,
and flutter from flower to flower;
sipping the nectar of youth,
the Pierian Spring,
'til it runs dry.
When does smoking begin, when does it end?
with the young and the old, and in between,
a lifetime, or a life deserted at the bend,
pleasurable, insatiable it could have been.

Anatomy of a tree Joyce Kilmer failed to see,
in his Only God can Make a Tree;
faith we embrace and not probe its mystery
keeps the peace of the world and thee.
Arthropods - highest in diversity:
if appendages are survival trends,
why did human become a biped
and left his four-legged friends?
Reptiles, descendants of giants,
annelids lost their appendages;
limbs to fins in fish, wings in birds,
by unseen hand through the ages.
