The Barbaric Butterfly

I have always been fascinated by this poem and John Keats.

It can be literally translated to “The Beautiful Lady Without Mercy” and was written as a ballad by Keats in 1819.

There is a 15th century poem of the same title also written by a French poet, Alain Chartier.

The photo was taken in Cordova, Cebu, Philippines by Chicozen.
