I am a field of clover,
sun kissed and ripe with dew,
my myriads of swollen purple heads
aching to be touched by buzzing bees.
I lay open, wide, soft and inviting,
waiting to be plucked by greedy hands
and nibbled on by the fattened cattle.
Three times three times three I spread,
across the plain until my needs are met.
When the heat rises, you cannot resist
my charms nor my scent, the promise of honey
mingled with the taste of summer to come.
