Bumblebee


Bumblebee, how do you soar
with a body so big and wings so short?

and still you buzz about,

Like the birds, I wish you would just fly South
instead of bumbling into my mouth.

The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
