Painted lady

A butterfly pondered her future

Wherein might she fathom the truth?

A wise beetle said ‘Hey!' 'If you’ll

Flutter this way, I may have what

You need as a proof’


The future is held in a vessel, a

Mystery I’m sure you’ll agree, it

Resides in a flower of extraordinary

Power, take a look you may like

What you see’


Therein was an image of beauty

A phantasmagorical sight

A magical ball, that foresaw and

Told all, of a lady, her future, her



A sparkling soothsayer of fortune

A f
antastical droplet of dew and

Just the right thing, a painted

Lady might think, would tell her

The absolute truth
