Bumblebees, Honeybees and Wasp
Tiny things that run the world,     	
busy beats, their wings unfurled. 	 
Bumblebees love anther thread		
blooming hues of blue and red. 
Golden pearls spread all about, 
gathered by a little scout.
Pollinizers-Flower Power 
Flower bouquets spread their scent, 
whiffs and swirls at spring’s advent. 
Orchard bees seek apple trees
guided by a fragrant breeze. 
Bees create a honey treat-          	
with lavender so pure and sweet. 

The Butterfly
Dainty things that run the world,    	
silent beats, their wings unfurled.   	
Butterflies from all around
follow scents that hug the ground.
Dancing-feet atop a bloom, 	
search for nectar to consume. 
Pollinizers-Array of Colors
Flower clusters, vivid hues
Yellows, reds but no blues,
Flower seeds secure their worth,
stretch their roots in fertile earth.
Coneflowers, their scattered seeds,
Best paired up with butterfly weeds.          

The Hummingbird
Swiftest things that run the world,
Hums and beats, their wings unfurled.
Hummingbirds need constant fuel.
Scented blooms attract this jewel.
Forward, backward, upside down.
These adept fliers rush around. 
The Beauty of Pollinizers 
Golden flowers brilliant blooms 
Entice birds with shiny plumes.
Blazing Star to Geranium,
Coral Bells to Delphinium.
Flower meadows, patchwork plots,
Scattered seeds in local lots.
