A Study in Butterfly Wing-Venation: Redacted Poem

This article, "A Study of Butterfly Wing-Venation," appeared in the 1907 volume "Smithsonian Miscellaneous Collections."  I have heavily redacted it to create a poem.  The faint picture in the upper right is a Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) photo of an impact site on the moon with butterfly ejecta pattern.  (Some speculate that this is the impact site of Lunar Orbiter 2, which impacted the surface in 1967.)  Photo credit: NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University
