You might find a small mouse
Barely missing a broom trying to hit it.
And a bird who's no fool,
Finding strings of red wool,
Flying of to its nest to now knit it.
There's a tiny grey skink,
Sliding quick as a wink,
Down the gutter to avoid the sun's burn.
In the bird bath are splashing
Mynah birds, wings a-thrashing,
Never giving the natives their turn.
As you walk in the garden,
You will hear no 'beg pardon'
As the ants busily bump in their rows.
You will see a lame pigeon
One leg shortened a smidgen,
Hobbling gingerly without half its toes.
There's a dog in a collar
Looking sad - its bipolar,
And a cat alongside looking sullen;
But much sadder than these,
Though he has a cute sneeze,
Is the bee who's allergic to pollen.
With bzzz bzzz and achoo
Off each anther anew,
As he lands, he's dislodged by his sneezing.
At the end of each day,
I am sure and daresay,
He returns to his hive tired and wheezing.
Though he's now turned asthmatic,
I can be most emphatic,
That his honey store never diminished.
It did not take much
Each flower needed a touch
And, though sneezing, the job still got finished
If your life's one big hurdle,
Gather skirts, tighten girdle,
Stay at it, keep running your race.
More is done by persistence
Sadness kept at a distance,
For each day He guarantees us His grace.
2Co 12:9 But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." ESV
1. Mynahs are introduced birds to Australia. They are aggressive and domineering.
2.Anthers are a part of a flower carrying pollen.
