You Voluble, Velvety, Vehement fellows by gozoinklings

You Voluble, Velvety, Vehement fellows

That play on your
Flying and
Musical cellos,
All goldenly
Girdled you
Serenade clover,
Each artist in
Bass but a
Bibulous rover!

You passionate,
Powdery
Pastoral bandits,
Who gave you your
Roaming and
Rollicking mandates?
Come out of my
Foxglove; come
Out of my roses
You bees with the
Plushy and
Plausible noses!

@khirsch thank you karin - glad you enjoyed the poem - these are two flowering onion heads with some kind of viney plant binding them together :o)

@gozoinklings I never would have guessed that. Onions have lovely flowers, like most bulb plants. You must have been with your nose down on the ground, so I should add amazing pov as well

They were growing in a raised field at the side of the road so I was actually reaching up on tiptoes :0)

Fantastic. Catching bees on the fly is so hard. I haven't been able to do it yet. I can just see you reaching up. I like the way the green leaf is twirling around the stem.
