Summer Delight

Components form a basic need
A plant produced, a healthy seed
Light and warmth, spring water flow
Tranquil air helps plants to grow

The sunshine rays that beam with light
With health, green leaves shall stand upright
Natural cycles won’t evolve
A dark surround, left bare and cold

That light of which dear plants rely
Devoid of light, such plants would die
Tall spindly state, o light shall seek
Epitomises growing weak

Watered fields, roots delight
Nutrient soil, anchored upright
Beneath the earth, a process starts
Up through the stem to distinct parts 

Sunshine glare, of natural bliss
Make way photosynthesis
Bring forth a bout of showering
The varied kinds are flowering

Embrace the harvest, water surge
Where leaves and flower buds emerge
Insects travel, pollination
Carried forth, fertilisation

Dispose and scatter seeds below
Create anew, for plants to grow
Coloured petals, a summer breeze
Butterflies and bumble bees

Attractive plant, a keen insect
Solid petals will protect
Sweetest nectar – energy
Exist for bees to make honey
