Four Couplets in Plague Time

Everything stirs up my blood:
Leaves and grass, and squishy mud.
Dancers in the field don’t need
Anything but chicken feed.
Don’t give garbage to your cow!
Stop this nonsense, stop it now!
I wish I could see the light;
Hear bees whisper, “It’s all right.”

  1. I love these, and am, as always, in awe of your inventiveness in these sort forms.

  2. These are really, really swell;
    You do The Couplet very well!

    Have a great Sunday, teach!

      At the couplet form, old lad! 🙂

  3. Reminds me of my days growing up on the farm!

  4. I’m with you on the bees! 🙂 (and on the cows…)

  5. Gotta love poems with cows and bees in them. Smiles.

  6. I, too, want to hear the reassuring whispers of bees…

  7. These are difficult times indeed, hold on .. this too shall pass 💝

  8. I think I need to spend some more time listening to my bee friends

  9. hypercryptical

    I urgently need bee time!
    Anna :o]

  10. Lisa at Greenbow

    I would like to hear anyone whisper ‘its all right’.

  11. Beverly Crawford

    What a charming interlude of couplets! Bravo

  12. Especially loved the reassuring bees at the end

  13. Nice. I love these all, especially the last one.


    I guess we’ll have to settle for Bob Marley telling us that everything’s gonna be alright since the bees are quiet on that one.

  15. Well entertaining as always but particularly so with regard to the gradual decimation of bees around the world. European bees were introduced to Australia many years ago and how thankful we are of that but they to are subject to multinationals destroying their habitat merely for profit and politicians are blind to the danger of course.

  16. Squishy mud, the times of being barefoot and carefree. The bees hear us and wonder what what is going on…

  17. nice and bouncy, your couplets.
    certainly, we are all waiting to hear “It’s all right.” 🙂

  18. It’s all right is exactly what we want to hear now!
