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.

Β After a brief interval

he has seen all he can

and heads to the skies before

he can be disturbed by a man.
