Apart from beekeeping I love to write,(mostly about bees!) so I thought I would make a present of this little poem to you all. I hope you like it!
TO BEE-- A FRIEND
One day a little honeybee,
Said, buzz-buzzily to me, â€œ
Do you like the food I make?
Do you like my honey cake?â€
â€œOh Yes!â€ I whispered, truthfully,
â€œI love your honey dearly.â€
â€œI love the way you visit flowers,
Working hard, through sunlit hours.â€
â€œPlease, will you then take care of me?â€
Buzzed the worried little bee,
â€œWhen summer flowers meet their end,
Will you be my gentle friend?â€
â€œOf course â€œ I answered, tearfully,
â€œIâ€™ll care for you most tenderly,
When frost and snow lies all around,
Iâ€™ll bring you sugar by the pound.â€
The little bee buzzed away,
I saw a daisy dance and sway,
I watched her kiss itâ€™s golden tips,
And bring me nectar for my lips.
