“Nature’s Dance”


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.
