Monarch Butterfly

The beauty of this majestic royal
perched amidst colorful hues
this regal insect rests awhile
all its surroundings to enthuse

Clear crisp wings of striking orange
with patterned tips of black and white
and circling round the whole wings
such a beautifully romantic sight

Long antenna to help smell and balance
while slender legs, fresh flowers to clutch
tasting their sweet nurishing nectar
this insect has a poisonous touch

A stunning black body with white spots
is really quite the final feature
for a butterfly that`s quite unique
this beautiful African creature
