All come to light

In cases where there is uncertainty
all will come to light.

With furled wing, with clear wing
with dusky, rosy under-wing
all come to light.

Even in the midst of flurry
all will come to light.

Flying from the dusk, flying in the night,
High flyer, June Flyer
all come to light.

Even when obscurely marked
all will come to light.

Fringes scalloped, pinkish flush,
marbled, feathered, Cinnabar
all come to light.

When the memory deceives
all will come to light.

Alchymist, Festoon, Vapourer,
Brocade and Coronet
all come to light.

Even now when lost in dust
all will come to light.
