(The Gardener speaks):
Thyme and lavender beloved of bees,
Irises bearded and beardless,
Chamomile, bee balm, and sage,
Blanc Double de Coubert Rugosa,
Lupins pink and blue,
Scented and zonal geraniums,
Purple columbine, yellow buttercups, astilbe,
And you, little low-growing pink pentagons
Whose name escapes me–
Why are you so sensational?
(The flowers answer):
Because we\’re seasonal.
Birds are like that for me, especially some of the calls. I hear it and think, \”I used to know what that was…\”
