Deep into summer Rudbeckia hirta Take over the garden And vie with Echinacea Over who is less common. Copyright © 2014 Suzanne Ennis

Sheer Pleasure of Pollen (poem)

The bees don’t hesitate– they go Headfast into the glory of the rose And if a bud is closed They ply it open frantically And push their heads Between the petals, Fluttering and shuddering In pleasure– The sheer pleasure Of the pollen. Copyright © 2014 Suzanne Ennis
