BUTTERFLIES " To be always seeking after the useful does

not become free and exalted Souls . "


Plato to his Utopia No poet would admit.

But they—his captives too—who make Songs for mere joy and music's sake, Under his Pupil sit : Their silly souls exalted, free, From flower to flower they rove, Not seeking, like the honey bee, What only may useful prove, But—unattainability !- The Muses' love.
