Humble Bee

Humble bee,
Survivor
Of insect
Nerve agent:
A statement
To persecutors
Whose purses
Bulge
At our bees
Expense.

Secure in a
Secret haven,
This furry friend
Works wisely,
Minutely,
It’s prize,
Protective
Pollen.

Fascinating meadow


image

The meadow’s buzzing,
Grasses jousting
Like a knights’ tournament,
Buttercups proudly
Shaking like fair
Maid’s bonnets,
Dandelion seeds
Dispersing in
Southerly
Breezes like
Sprinkles of fairy
Kisses.
Daisy charms
Adorn children
Whose footsteps
Tread, releasing
Sweet honey aromas,
Their giggles
Heard from dusk
Till dawn on
Midsummer eve.
Fawns leap
And elves weep
For joy as
The Fairy Queen
Is crowned in the
Toadstool ring.
