Wild Rose and Bee

Wild roses bloom here along the front range in May and June, typically. This particular one was waiting on May 30, 2009, complete with bee. I couldn’t help but remember the Emily Dickinson poem that reads:

Come slowly — Eden!
Lips unused to Thee —
Bashful — sip thy Jessamines —
As the fainting Bee —

Reaching late his flower,
Round her chamber hums —
Counts his nectars —
Enters — and is lost in Balms.

That about sums it.
