At a Closer Look






At a closer look,
The flower,
And the bee,
Are more beautiful
Than the distance told.

The bee,
Looking at the flower
Could only stare;
For at a closer look,
The purple petals,
Become a blanket,
That wraps him,
In its warmth.

At a closer look,
The flower,
And the bee,
Are more beautiful.
