Verse on back: "Have patience! the chrysalis lies, The lowest of earthly things-Before, as a butterfly, It rises on outspread wings-The clouds must part in the sky, When summer the sunshine brings. Have patience! our feet must rest where the shade of the valley lies-Before, with outreaching wings, We flutter towards the skies-Before, on the mountain crest, We open our earth-bound eyes."
