stupendous Helen. Now when I see those "fragile" flutterbys I'll think of them as Rabble Rousers and I'll think of you! Cheers!
Drat that lazy rabble--always needing rousing! But this ought to do it Helen. I would definitely be ready to get up off my duff if I saw that helmet coming. ;_)
smiles...defy convention...i like me some revolutionary rabble rousing attitude...smiles.
I believe it, Helen!
Haha....lovely prose and such a lovely pic. Within the fragility lies an indomitable strength!!!
I love the tone and the energy of your poem!
Ha! You ol' rabble-rouser, you!!
That royalty, always rabble rousing!! Fun write Helen, and great use of the words :-)
Aww! Very charming--I feel in great company, if you don't mind my saying so. I have a helmet on as I read (but it is for biking.) Thanks, Helen. K.
Such a lively character I bet ~ I like the ending rabble rouser ~ Wishing you happy weekend Helen ~
Straight forward indeed.Well done!
I want to take you out to tea, and introduce you to a friend, just so I can say, "They call her Rabble Rouser."
this one is a song, i believe :)
big smiles here, Helen. thanks for joining in ~ M
Was just thinking howmuch it looked like a helmet and then started to read your poem .
Ha, it really does look like a helmet. Rabble-rousing is always a good thing.
Straightforward indeed - way to be!! Love it Helen!
Monarch Butterflys as rabble rousers? Heavens, no! But thanks for the lovely poetic suggestion.Blessings and Bear hugs!
Amazing insect, amazing picture, amazing poet!
Ah Helen, I can imagine you rousing a good deal of rabble! Wonderful!
Beautiful snap and lovely words! So special. Thank you so much for popping in to see me and your well wishes. Hope you have a wonderful week.Be a sweetie,Shelia ;)
I love it!
Ah, Helen... we do love a blast from the past!
The second reading tastes as delicious (and wonderfully true) as the first.
Ooh gosh I love this!!💜
I'm absolutely delighting at the line deluded close-minded wonkswhat a great word: wonks - this is just such a great little treat of a piece!
I love it... not fragile at all, and rabble is so close to rebel.
Nice, Helen. I knew you weren't fragile, all the traveling that you do. Pleasant little piece, there's a word or two that my kiddie filter didn't like. It had "wonks" confused with another word. But in the process I learned the meaning of the word. You are a true rabble rouser to fool those guys!! I have a few in mind you could practice on...
hey I recognize that photo :)good to see you , Helen ~
Yay, you! I'll come and man (er, woman) the barricades with you any time. xx
That is a fierce little flutter-by. I rather like her.
I love it. I have 11 years to go to catch up with you age wise. You go girl!
Wonks fear you.
