"There is little enough devotion in the world that we should be glad for it in whatever form it appears, and never mock it, or underestimate its depths."

National Poetry Month: Matsuo Basho
There's something great about short poems because they are so simple, but can say so much. I especially like the image that this poem gives of the bee staggering because he's so overcome with pollen or the scent of the peony or both. It seems appropriate for my first day back to school from spring break since I'm sure to be staggering a bit by the end of it!
