John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:7845
AUTHOR:Sarah Morgan Bryant Piatt (1836– ?)
QUOTATION:This was your butterfly, you see—
  His fine wings made him vain:
The caterpillars crawl, but he
  Passed them in rich disdain.—
My pretty boy says, “Let him be
  Only a worm again!”
ATTRIBUTION:After Wings.
