Love in the Antipodean Garden

I

Love filters into the air
Like the smell of amorous roses
In the antipodean garden

II

The spring flowers burst open:
The bees oil their wings with desire;
Signaling the new dawn of kissing in the vines

III

The female kangaroo moves delicately
Across the manicured lawn
Her heart beats for Joey
