The Broken Wing

When you find a butterfly with a broken wing, you can hold it.


 You can talk to it...about anything.
 You can let it get to know you...
You can take it to a beautiful place.  You'll weep when your mother coldly tells you that it will most likely be bird food. But you can protect it until the sun sets.

But who knows, maybe it will enjoy a peaceful life it a beautiful place. It could happen! I liked this post. It reminded me of the books "If you give a mouse a cookie" or "If you give a pig a pancake" (I think that's what the last one is called any way).

This needs to be an illustrated children's book.
