What does THIS poem mean?
It has a strong word choice, therefore it is a little confusing.
by Timothy Steele
The lizard, an exemplar of the small,
Spreads fine, adhesive digits to perform
Vertical push-ups on a sunny wall;
Bees grapple spikes of lavender, or swarm
The dill’s gold umbels and low clumps of thyme.
Bored with its trellis, a resourceful rose
Has found a nearby cedar tree to climb
And to festoon with floral furbelows.
Though the great, heat-stunned sunflower looks half-dead
The way it, shepherd’s crook-like, hangs its head,
The herbs maintain their modest self-command:
Their fragrances and colors warmly mix
While, quarrying between the pathway’s bricks,
Ants build minute volcanoes out of sand.
Thank you guys SOOOO much!
This really really really really helps me.
I cannot be more thankful :]

I think it’s about a lizard climing a wall.
And eventually gets bored, and climbs on a rose?

Wow, I like this poem. It’s about nature having it’s own way of living. When something dies there are others that outlast that which ha died.
