Butterfly: (rainbow...flower...sunrise... )

be a dying. --- Robert Herrick 1591

John Keats 1795

those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity. Hours fly, flowers die, new days, new ways, pass by.

Love stays. --- Sundial Inscription

appears and delights us for one brief moment, but soon flits away. --- Anna Pavlova 1881

Walter C Hagen 1892
