“Signs of Spring”

"Signs of Spring"
Mykaila Ricks, '26

Because I could not assess for
They did kindly assess for me.
Pause to assess ,like Butterflies do

How happy are Joyful Swallows!
Never forget the gleeful and Overjoyed

One afternoonI said to myself
“Why aren’t bees more disloyal”
Bees are nationalistic .Bees are allegiant,
Bees are true- blue ,however.

Insects ,however hard they try,
Will always be mellow .
Are you upset by how chromatic they are ?

Does it tear you apart to see the insects
So irrational?
