C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Butterfly
 
        I’d be a butterfly, born in a bower,
Where roses and lilies and violets meet.
Thomas Haynes Bayly.    
  1
        The gold-barr’d butterflies to and fro
  And over the waterside wander’d and wove
  As heedless and idle as clouds that rove
And rift by the peaks of perpetual snow.
Joaquin Miller.    
  2
        With the rose the butterfly’s deep in love,
  A thousand times hovering round;
But round himself, all tender like gold,
  The sun’s sweet ray is hovering found.
Heine.    
  3
        Much converse do I find in thee,
Historian of my infancy!
Float near me; do not yet depart!
Dead times, revive in thee:
Thou bring’st, gay creatures as thou art!
A solemn image to my heart.
Wordsworth.
