The Gift

"May I recommend something?"
He face folded in origami wrinkles 
asked brightening 
As he reached toward the gleaming cabinet
Opened its doors and from the recessed shelter
Pulled the delicate thing into sturdy studied hands
"A perfect gift for love "
And there on a fan of emerald fern
Posed a perfect butterfly translucent
Wings shirring shimmered rainbows 
"It is not peanuts I know
The cost is dear but
I will guide you in it's care
And the score that will be 
released will lift 
you to soar forever more"
