And The Roses

 
Like ladies at a garden party
day lilies lean slightly tipsy by steps
leading into a pebbled courtyard
 
Sprays of scarlet roses droop
and invite my nose to press in
I inhale—the bees have nothing on me
 
Scent of summer fills the air
each bloom intoxicating
warm air suffused with perfume
 
Bees burrow in like lovers
then back out dazed and weaving
drunk on golden nectar
 
Stand at the threshold
