The Butterfly Panda Silk Top
What bless’d example do I find writ in the word of truth
Of children that began to mind all nature in their youth.
A panda soft, a tiger fierce, a butterfly in flight,
Is it not true that humankind in animals delights?
Defer not, friend, your acts of hope, now we must all be wise,
To-morrow’s sun, for our dear beasts again may ne’er rise.
