A Luckless Pair
written by William Henry Davies
Nature Poems (1908) Link to further information




Poor, luckless Bee, this sunny morn;
That in the night a Wind and Rain
Should strip this Apple-tree of bloom,
And make it green again.

You, luckless Bee, must now seek far
For honey on the windy leas;
No sheltered garden, near your hive,
To fill a bag with ease.

My Love was like this Apple-tree,
In one sweet bloom, all yesterday;
But something changed her too, Alas!
And I am turned away.
