Fluttering, flittering,
Fleetingly skittering,
The bats burst out the tangle of ash,

Swerving, zipping,
Instinctively flipping,
The evening acrobats dash,

Deftly dancing,
Artfully darting,
Whirring wings above me flash,

Flickering, twisting,
Skittishly skimming,
My heart leaps at needle squeak,

Zigzagging, twirling,
Swiftly swerving,
Detector splutters as they streak,

Swaying, scooting,
Nimbly swooping,
Their movement so unique,

Frolicking, frisking
...

I breathe in beauty from my bower, as my boots swing above the brook.

I hear the scurble of the stream as it scurries over stones, and the scritching scratch of Artemis, scrabbling for bones. 

And a flabby tubby burble as the swashy water tumbles in the plastic tunnel liner through the limestone bridge that funnels, the day’s rain from the moor.

Past the fields and fences, festooned with fluffy fronds from lambs that gawk and gambo...

Am I too small to save the bees? 

It’s a shame to lose them, can I help them please?

We planted some trees my mummy and me, 

The nectar they love and their home is the tree.

Am I too small to help I ask? 

My grandad said no and we set off on a task, 

We built a hotel for the bees to stay 

It has wooden tubes for them to play  

Am I too small to really help out?

My daddy said I can help without a doubt

Using less water in the garden...
