This is actually a Villonnet, but that option isn't available so I chose Rhyme.

Iambic tetrameter

How humbly hover honey bees betwixt and 'tween as flowers preen in April's opalescent sheen and petals palpitate in breeze. Beside an arbor's graceful ease of roses splayed in promenade with poppies sprayed across the glade how humbly hover honey bees. While lilies lilt beneath the trees the sunlight dapples daffodils that pose in pots upon the sills as petals palpitate in breeze. How humbly hover honey bees, purveyors of the pollen yield. As petals palpitate in breeze they fend the fragrant flower field. 8/24/19

Andrea, that would be surprising, if Dale didn't. I don't know about the readers whose English is their native language, but for me it's kind of a magic. I have read this poem aloud several times and something makes me read more. This must be the magic I told) P.S.: I guess there's no point congratulating Dale. He knows he's a magician without my comments.

I say back the same to you. Beautiful and so well metered! The form seems so much like pantoum/villanelle,quatern, all those types that repeat lines. I love them all.
