Let me in!

Let me in! Let me in!

cried the bee

the sun is scorching

feel the window to see


The plant next to the window

has a cool leaf

a flower blooming

a place of relief


Tapping hard

the glass will not move

legs stuck to the window

sliding down to the groove


Buzzing now

begging for help

sun getting hotter

beginning to melt


A ray of hope

a hole in the screen

edging through it

cool and redeemed


On the flower now

restored and in a sweet slumber

cool drafts flow through the leaves

content in the summer
