A Moment in Summer

By Charlotte Zolotow, US.

A moment in summer
belongs to me
and one particular
honey bee.
A moment in summer
shimmering clear
making the sky
seem very near,
a moment in summer
belongs to me.

From The Random House Book of Poetry for Children, selected by Jack Prelutsky, illustrated by Arnold Lobel, 1983 Random House.
