Tiger Swallowtail

Dancing in the dappled light
Like a spot of sun through the trees
There's a Tiger Swallowtail
Floating gently with the breeze

Who made the Tiger Swallowtail
Who gave the caterpillar wings
Did He think we'd gaze at it
And dream of higher things

It's just a glimpse of paradise
Through yellow stained glass wings
Did God gave us the butterflies
To dream of greater things

Such delightful symmetry
Has nearly got me overwhelmed
If God made creatures such as these
Then why not other realms
