Summer sneaks in
and creepy-crawly, multi-winged,
many-legged creatures abound --
an underappreciated army --
daily risking life and limb. This
frantically pullulating poly-nation
is busily flitting, flying, creeping
out and about, steeping in stamens,
pollinating pistils, participating
in a feeding, fertilizing frenzy.
