Dragonflies! Butterflies! Hoverflies!
The garden’s found summer at last:
and just for a moment – and possibly more
no acre of sky is o’ercast.
Now people are ready to smile and be friendly,
delighted by absence of rain,
and making a toast of the warmth
and the most of it, lest floods beleaguer again.
O how has this summer affected the insects
that hover and flutter and zoom?
Let’s hope things won’t worsen
and change put a curse on
the climate - which could spell out doom.
