What’s This I See? It’s Not A Bee!

What’s This I See? It’s Not a Bee!

.

What’s this I see?
It’s not a bee!
It skims the blossoms gracefully
and flies at sleepy summer’s pace
to each up-lifted flower’s face.

Oh ladybug I wish you joy
as you complete your garden chores.
I’d like to put aside my work
and join you in the out-of-doors!

Grass, Joyce Sidman

5 Jan

Grass, Joyce Sidman

I grow in places
others can’t,

where wind is high
and water scant.

I drink the rain,
I eat the sun;

before the prairie winds
I run.

.

I see, I sprout,
I grow, I creep,

and in the ice
and snow, I sleep.

On steppe or veld
or pampas dry,

beneath the grand,
enormous sky,

I make my humble,
bladed bed.

And where there’s level ground,
I spread.
