The Monarch's Progress
Poems With WingsBook - 2008
"Why are butterflies so universally loved? Is it the dazzling colors within exquisite winged living art? Is it the miracle of change that fascinates us--that wonderful metamorphosis from tiny egg to brilliant insect? Avis Harley explores these questions and many others that have captivated humans throughout history. Eighteen structured poems--haiku, sonnets, cinquain, limerick, and other forms--examine how monarch butterflies taste with their feet, migrate 2,500 miles every year, and cover entire forest groves when they rest. A 'Small Matters' section at the back explains the facts and science in the poems."--Publisher description.
