A Collection of Short Poems For Summer

ITINERANT BEE
DUTIFULLY PROCURING
SCENT OF A THOUSAND FLOWERS.
-Kate Alsbury


BUZ, BUZ, BUZ
BUZ, BUZ, BUZ--SAYS THE GREAT BUZZING BEE.
GO AWAY BUTTERFLY--THIS FLOWER IS FOR ME.
WHY? WHY? WHY? SAYS THE LITTLE BUTTERFLY,
IF YOU MAY SIT ON THIS FLOWER, WHY MAY'NT I?
-Clara Doty Bates


SURROUNDED BY HEAT
THE BATTLE WON AT SUNDOWN
SLOW DAYS IN THE SHADE.
-Kate Alsbury


THE TREES SHIVER

GOLDEN SHAFTS

BURN THE LAST FROST

FROM WILLOWED BLADES.
-Kate Alsbury


WILD GEESE WRITE A LINE

FLAP-FLAPPING ACROSS THE SKY
COMICAL DUTCH SCRIPT
-Soin


IN THESE DARK WATERS

DRAWN UP FROM MY FROZEN WELL
GLITTERING OF SPRING
-Ringai


PUFFY GRAY BLANKET

BRINGS A MORNING RAINSHOWER

WE ALL HAVE A BATH
-Kate Alsbury
