Busy contemplating this tree
There are so many things I could be doing with my hours,
But I can hear the bees whispering to the flowers.
I could fix that thing that’s been bugging me for days,
But there’s a squirrel up there enthralling me with its playful ways.
Of course there’s that job I promised to do,
But now a beautiful butterfly has come into view.
And what about that bill that needs to be paid,
Since I’m watching these ants busying, I think I’ll be delayed.
There are so many things that need to be done,
So I really should set off in a run.
But they will all have to wait for me,
Because I’m busy contemplating this tree.
