Deep in the heart of the countryside,
Two moss maidens look on in awe,
As a miracle of creation takes place.
The spirit of the tree watches,
As her leafy offspring take flight.
Each magical leaf transforms,
Into a beautiful butterfly.
As it is shaken gently from the boughs,
Woodland fairies seize the moment,
To soar gracefully over the meadow,
Nestled safely in the delicate wings.

This butterfly tree has been a work in progress for my niece's wedding. It will be a decoration beside the cards for seating at her reception. I even have it done way ahead of time! And, of course, these wonderful little butterfly images are available through Moonlight Journey.
