Poem: Ants and Peonies

image

Ants are on the peonies
Before they’ve come to bloom
Crawling black and little legs
That linger on green moon
Green globes edged with purple
Magenta majesty within
Waiting to unfold her petals
Reveal secrets within
In hot sun, they secrete
A secret yet unfurled
The ants will crawl all over
And explore this new green world
Upon the buds yet open
Do these ants sit and wait
Soon, these petals will unfold
For now, they hesitate
Ants are on the peonies
And slowly disappear
To hide in holes in flowerbeds
As Summer draws ever near
