An Inquisitive Robin

An inquisitive robin
is sitting in a tree
the subject of his curiosity
is a buzzing bumble bee.

The bee is hovering
over a dark red rose
examining it closely to see
what threat it may pose.

Satisfied its will not come to harm
it lands on a petal
then another and another
before it decides to settle.

The robin wants a closer look
and lands on a nearby bench
as the bee flies off as if
repulsed by the roses stench.

The robin drops to the ground
and wanders over to the rose,
slowly approaching to see
what secrets it might disclose.

After a brief interval
he has seen all he can
and heads to the skies before
he can be disturbed by a man.
