And when did you say you first had reason

to thank your body for willful treason?

Or did you mourn that other, that butterfly,

when – without so much as notice or even sigh –

it abandoned its old miraculous flight,

its perfect poise, its great spot above prospect or plight,

and to cocoon reverted again, in sudden fear

of losing all touch with all that should be dear?
