Spring Song

Spring
Breathes new life into the
Tiny aphids
The insatiable lovers
Of the rose buds

Effusion of colours
In a lonely paddock, a
Smorgasbord
Of tasty buds of spring
Plucked from the heavens

Rose aphids
On the rampage, this swollen
Egg-like sacks
Passionately sucking
The juice divine

Amorous
Rose of Findon found
Her way
Into the heart of aphid
One perfect day
