Lessons Mother Taught Us by J.D. DeutschendorfShe planted dill for swallow-tails and milkweed where monarchs would lay their caterpillar offspring round the grass green meadows of May. The migrants returned then as always; how quickly her crops were consumed! but countless chrysalides dotted the dell tucked inside their golden cocoons. Then early one morning she beckoned us watch the mystery unfold; the metamorphosis almost complete translucent shells gave up their gold. Wet wings greeted the rising sun and the warmth of a soft summer breeze, soon butterflies coloured meadow and wood floating gracefully throughout the trees. She told us of unseen transcendings as we watched the born-agains soar; so certain were we then of heaven as if we had been there before.
