The summer breeze was light and airy
The leaves were drifting down from everywhere
And the flowers were dancing like a fairy
The grass was still and until they dared
At first they swayed in the breeze
And soon they danced and pranced waiting for the link
To catch the bees
As they twirl in sync
All together plants will sing and dance
Singing to the music
Creating their airy stance
The night’s acoustic
As the day goes, so does the light
Until it’s dark and they dance through the night.
