THE HURRIED HYMN OF A BUMBLING BEE

I can't slow down to sing a psalm
                except to hum,
 I must stop in on Rose, Sundrop,
                Geranium,
 Forsythia, Tulip, Violet,
                Chrysanthemum!

 This yellow jacket that I wear,
                this royal robe,
 Opens the door to every flower
                I care to probe,
 To help make love between them live
                around the globe.

 But I must hurry: tough, true love's
                in short supply,
 I have a million visits due
                before I die,
 And many hearts to link before
                I say goodbye.

 Your name, Pure Being, sounds like mine,
                Great Hive of Grace,
 Pure Beeing is all I can lay  
                before your face:
 Hurry!  And we can make the world
                a honeyed place.




from the forthcoming book Prayers of 100 Animals A to Z, by William Cleary
