Liatris and butterfly

The butterfly obtains
But little sympathy
Though favorably mentioned
In Entomology —

Because he travels freely
And wears a proper coat
The circumspect are certain
That he is dissolute —

Had he the homely scutcheon
Of modest Industry
‘Twere fitter certifying
For Immortality —

~ Emily Dickinson

    Nice blog with great photos. I’ll be back. BTW – the quote on this page is by Rachel Carson. I found your site while doing a source check for another quote that you have posted elsewhere.

      Ah, I see what you mean, the quote in my right sidebar. Thanks, I always wondered just who wrote that! Figured it must be Mr. Harper and Mr. Row, LOL – Thanks for visiting!
