The merry dance of meadow browns
rising in clouds of delicate wings
fluttering amidst the blossoms.
Foxgloves are the refuge
of the bumblebees who
can only sneak a sip of these nectars,
and claim the catmint,
for their usual haunts
of oxeye daisies, scabious and red campions
are full of other feeders.
The summer sun calls these
delicate creatures forth
in profusion this year
bringing a smile
and gladdening the heart.
