Shadow Dance


Plain Murder

I saw a wasp upon a wall
And did not like his face at all:
And so the creature had no time
To wonder whether he liked mine.

~A.G. Prys-Jones (1888 – 1987)

Even though the poet writes about squashing the wasp before it stings him,  I did not swat this one. He was only seeking a warm spot in the sun on a chilly day.
