I love our wild flowers like foxgloves and mallow, so do the bees

Freckled throats open adagio
from the base. Temptress to bees
who enter each fairy glove, a feast
of pollen that lasts several weeks.
Daily they circle, bumble in and out
of the mauve tinkerbells that whirl
up each tall spire.In the language
of flowers you lion-mouth insincerity,
whisper hypocrisy ; sway between
Drs Crippen and Christian Barnard.
