DELIA: “He was kindly. We’d be out walking in an evening in late summer after the rain had passed. He would suddenly stop, swoop down to save a butterfly stranded, drowning in a puddle of muddy water along the path. He’d gently lift the creature and blow on it – softly, then whisk it away waving it from his hand. It was his habit. Sometimes, they would be beyond saving and would flop ingloriously to the pathway – dead. For the remainder of the evening he would have such a look of sadness about him. Imagine – a bug dies and he’s devastated. I suppose in a way that was what made him likable – his love of the downtrodden. I wonder if that’s why I loved him. Or, was it simply pity that I’d mistaken for something else – love? Did I make more of this man than was really there.”
