Seasonal Sonnet

A jungle lives here, right outside the door,
With birds and beasts and reptiles, bugs and more:
And even through the window, there’s a show,
Of bathing beauties breaking from canto.
A thousand thousand blossoms, open wide,
Share pollen and their nectar deep inside.
The fuzzy bumbles stuffing themselves in
Replace the hummingbirds with tongues so thin.
Come carry out the compost with me, please,
But as you go, watch out for wasps and bees,
And just today I very nearly stepped
On garter snakes that beautifully crept.
This Eden doesn’t last, but in its place
Comes shining Winter next in seasons’ chase.
