The Ant

The Ant
By Appreciable Goodfaithpoet

I saw a tiny ant an afternoon ago
Dragging something sparkling, what was that thing in tow?
Upon closer inspection I realized with a start
That the ant had found a butterfly wing
(The most graceful of all natures art)
Could the queen have made a special plea?
Or ordered a piece for her chamber wall?
Saying, "Bring a thing of beauty to me!"
Was this ant I saw just fulfilling the call?
This is, I think, what queen ants do
For ants, I guess, like beauty too.
