|The Grayling Butterfly|
Grayling – (1st July 2011)
Grayling butterflies must have hatched today,
I have seen them here and seen them there,
On the limestone pavements and on the scree,
You watch them flutter, so fanciful and free.
Then they come down to settle on the ground,
With wings not open but so tightly bound,
And then they fall upon their side.
