Butterfly woman

The people of this world are like three butterflies before a candle’s flame.
The first flies closer and says, “I know about love.”
The second touches the flame with her wings and says,
“I know love’s fire can burn.”
The third throws herself into the flame and is consumed.
She alone knows what true love is.
