A Leppidoptera

Although it's flight is quite erratic
This dainty insect soars ecstatic
And though it seems to have no power
It effortlessly gains each flower
On wings so fragile and exquisite
Every blossom begs it's visit
And we entreat the question why
God created the butterfly

I loved it, I have heard butterfly poems before, but this was entirely new. Keep it up!
A delightful little poem, only marred by details - Lepidoptera has one P, and means insects as a whole, not just one individual. ITS as a possessive has no apostrophe. I can't contact you privately to say this, as I would prefer, but will happily remove criticism if you correct the points and contact me.
