      Valediction

      Now the bumbling bees that hover
      Over loveliness in flower
      Important with their store of pollen
      Have had their hour;

      Time has come for you to shed your
      Silken petals and declare
      Whether you are apple, cherry,
      Plum or pear,

      And all summer take your pleasure
      Nourishing the ripening fruit
      With the sun and rain you welcome
      Through leaf, through root.

      - Charles W. Pratt
