The Day the Yellow Snuck In

 

I woke up one morning with a considerable plight

I discovered nature’s yellow,

Had snuck in, 

In the night.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

There were bits of it here and bits of it there 

There even were bits in my underwear!

---------------------------------------------------------------

So I went round my house with rapid precision

To clean it all up had been my decision

But as much as I wiped and as much as I polished

Not one bit of yellow could I seem to demolish!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At the end of the day not one yellow was gone

So I locked up the house and slept until dawn.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I awoke with a start! When I heard a loud tapping

A bee at my window discontinued my napping.

But what was he saying? What was it he sought?

I didn’t speak bee. I’d never been taught.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

He seemed to be angry and not just a little.

I called my two dogs.  There was no time to fiddle.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First came Dim Sum, who we sometimes called Bucket.

He has a sick paw and spends time trying to suck it….

The other is Crunch. He can be quite grumpy.

If you move too quickly, he gets very jumpy.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Both spoke fluent bee so I told them my trouble,

Two dogs with one problem can sometimes help double.

Well, they all had a chat and what seemed to come about

Was what the bee wanted, was the yellow let out!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So we opened the windows and we opened the doors

The bees flew in to grab the yellow and more!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There were butterflies and dragonflies, all purple and blue

I even saw a ladybug fly into my shoe!  

They picked up the yellow and inside a minute,

My house looked like the yellow, had never been in it!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We watched as they flew over each little flower

And dropped all their yellow like a tiny golden shower.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Of course more flowers is what this did mean

I high- fived my friends,

as we surveyed the scene.

They call this stuff pollen in the land of grown-up

But I still call it yellow when I talk to my pups.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

A few months later we sat out in the garden

I heard a small buzzing that was begging my pardon

The bees had brought me a jar full of sweet honey

and we all became friends. Now isn’t that funny?

 

 

 

The End
