My friends, the limes are blooming now
And in their vaults the holy bees
Intone their sacred offices.
Of all high Summer’s sacraments,
This moves me most and with sweet scents
Body and mind intoxicates.
For this brief moment in the year,
Come share the fragrance of the limes
And, like the bees, forget all else.
The two giant limes in the school playground are in full flower. 5.7.92
