“The earth laughs in flowers.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Geraldine and the Honey Bee

Geraldine, chrysanthemine
Prettiest little flower that I ever seen
She’s a friend of mine, she’s a friend of mine
Petal child, growin’ wild and
Even though she’s livin’ in a compost pile
She’s my glitter and my gold
She’s my glitter and my gold

Whoa Geraldine, have you forgotten?
Baby I have come for your sweet pollen

I can’t wait to pollenate
Come on pretty baby let’s celebrate
Warm and livin’
The takin’ and a-givin’
Whoa … my my my

Love you high, sting you low
Buzzin’ everywhere that you let me go
Go my way, mama let me go my way

Whoa Geraldine, have you forgotten?
Baby I have come for your sweet pollen

I might go gray, I might go blind
I’m never goin’ back to that honeysuckle vine
Long as your alive, I’ll buzz around your hive
Geraldine, chrysanthemine
Prettiest little flower that I’ve ever seen
She’s my honeydew baby
Honey do me again
Oh-ho

Seeing the same thing

“What we do see depends mainly on what we look for. … In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, the geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the colouring, sportmen the cover for the game. Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them.”
― John Lubbock, The Beauties of Nature and the Wonders of the World We Live in
