Do the humming bees
Ever feel a slight unease
Whenever the learned folk
Say they shouldn’t be flyin’.
Do the flying geese
Ever think that they should cease
Give up, give in and take a rest
Yet high above they fly untiring?
Does the tiny ant
Stop and say that he just can’t
The load too heavy – too extreme
Refuse what he can’t carry?
Does the child in womb
Refuse to grow – it’s much too soon
In fear his sits and waits his fate
But later, finds he’s much too late?
Man could understand
And venture forth,
And realize there’s beauty
in his weakness.
He must learn to grow – to strive
He needs to learn to be alive
And in his growth
He finally sees
The wisdom of
The birds and bees.
