Monday's Quotes


Today I saw a butterfly--
And with what sweet unreason
Seemed such loveliness a-wing
This frosty season.

There were no honey goblets
To which it might have come;
Not even one blue aster cup,
Not one chrysanthemum.

I saw a butterfly today--
How wan its flight, how slow!--
A last white butterfly, or else
A first soft flake of snow.

Kitchen Sonnets
Ethel Romig Fuller

Welcome to November!
There still are chrysanthemums in my garden.
Haven't seen a white butterfly,
but watch the hummingbird visiting nearby.

I love this! Indeed, we have had our first flake of snow (on Halloween, no less). I'd rather have butterflies!
