At Last

Source unknown

I hold you at last in my hand, Exquisite child of the air.Can I ever understand How you grew to be so fair?

Now I hold you fast in my hand, You marvelous butterfly,Till you help me to understand The eternal mystery.

From that creeping thing in the dustTo this shining bliss in the blue!God give me courage to trustI can break my chrysalis too!
