What did You learn

And what did you learn- the Fairy Fly asked-

When Your wings were broken- and Your world collapsed-

Did your Polar Beat pulse-as you trudged over me-

Where my wings lay unopened- separated from me-

Did you notice Them working from their hole in the ground-

In Their striped Black and Yellow- bumbling around.

                        What did You learn.


Post pandemic thoughts from the Earth beneath our feet.
