Summer’s Beauty (A Decima)

(From the Writer’s Digest Poetic Form Challenge Decima) This is a much more complex and structured poetic form than I’ve tried before. It consists of ten lines, eight syllables each, with a very specific rhyme pattern.

Summer’s beauty, magical things
New flowers with colorful bloom
From blossom to hive the bees zoom.
Jenny wren so beautifully sings,
Endless food to her young she brings.
Fireflies appear at dusk of night.
Some say Lightning Bugs—both are right.
Small beetles that glow in the sky
Children catch them from where they fly
Collected in jars for their light.
