The Fritillary Butterfly

Inside a tiny egg

A new life takes its form.

It grows and changes day by day,

In sunbeams bright and warm.

A larva breaks

The fragile shell

And wriggles forth to crawl about,

A fragrant world to smell.

The larva eats

And daily grows.

It sheds its skin and eats again.

You wonder what it knows.

Then when the time

Is right to change

And wait for better things to come

It leaves its well-known range.

A time of waiting,

Growing more and more,

Will change this earthbound larva

From what it was before.

Inside a chrysalis

The earthbound creature lies,

Waiting for its growing wings

To take it to the skies.

And then a new day comes

When warmth and radiant light

Bring forth a lovely creature

That's new and whole and bright.

Its life is different.

With wings it soars up high.

No longer limited to earth,

The Fritillary Butterfly takes to the sky.

In Christ there's hope

For life that's bright and new.

Our bodies too will change

When earthbound days are through.
