I wish I were a lily pond
With fronds so large frogs sun upon
Where bees that buzz and zap about
Do forage there to find a spout
Of honey dip where they may sup
Like queens who nip from golden cup.
Or fragile birds who’ll take a sip
And clean themselves or have a dip
Like magic faun who deign to hide
From human eye by waterside,
Oh such sweet paradise is there
Let’s all rejoice and choose to share !
