A short free verse poem, using a simple rhyme scheme


The birds and the bees,

Made their home in the trees,

Among branches as essential as leaves,


For food and safety they only care,

The birds and bees this tree they share,

Around it's trunk and in the air,


As the seasons come and go,

Around this tree much will grow,

The birds and bees fly to and fro,


Until one day a man did come,

Upon his back he held no gun,

But a crude metal axe he swung,


It struck the wood hard and fast,

The birds and the bees let out a gasp,

Then they saw their home lose it's grasp,


Down came the tree heavy and hard,

To be cut and placed upon a cart.

Both birds and bees had a broken heart.
