But For Clouds and Bees | Mark Weinrich

Winter longs to thrust its frosty sword within

a crisp and starry night to rob the year of sweetness.

But for clouds and bees winter would extend its reign.


A symphony of bees, tuning blossoms and mining

fruit, await the nurturing clouds, that descend

like hens with tender under-feathers setting the crop.


As the curtain clouds fall, the sweeter seasons

erupt in grateful applause.
