Art thou asleep, all cozy and curled up
Dreaming of blossoms, bluebell, buttercup?
While bushels of bushes
you crawled thru with greed,
Which fairy's wand struck you
and softly decreed
This is the moment, put on your nightgown,
Zip on the sack, bristling and brown.
O chrysalis dear, a raindrop in amber
Pendant as winging, pensive in slumber
What wonders were wrought
What charms for you brought
To wrap you in colors
More dazzling than flowers?
Who emailed and told you when to emerge
Soft petals and pollen to gently besiege?
Poised on a twig, braving the breeze
An enchanting cameo, a fresco, a frieze.
