William, Such a stirring sonnet! It sings the song of nature! I especially like the first stanza:

These first two ants ran up the peony,

Deeply drinking exuding sweet nectar,

Fighting off those aphids so easily,

Thrips are no match for these plant protectors.

I love the image of the peony flower with two ants running up! Best wishes always, Amy
