a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Beeing For dVerse Poets Pub

I met a bee today
Legs pollen laden
His tail told me
To stay away

Watching him
As he flitted
He didn't care
If I stood or sitted.

Gathering pollen
On this spring day
To make honey
For winter's stay

It is a lesson
We can't beat
Store it now
So all can eat

Bees are so important for us, yet so under threat. A great poem to honour our buzzy friends!

This made me smile, Gail. Loved it. Though as this is our very first warm day, I hated even reading the word winter....hee hee.

Sounds like a good twist on the grasshopper and the ant.

Lovely poem in honour of the humble bee, where would we be without it.

This is simply a "honey" of a poem! ...and besides honey, we need bees to pollinate crops and fruit trees..such industrious and vital creatures.

Thank you for bringing in the humble, industrious, magical bee! I keep wishing I had a large enough garden to have a couple of bee hives - I love them (and their honey). A fun, easy to read poem, one I'm sure my kids would appreciate as well!

Busy bee :) Lovely.

I know we need the bees, but I don't love them and i don't want them in the yard. tried to get bob to remove the bee tree, but he will not... the tree HUMS ... we now have bees and mosquitoes.. they are here for the duration. i like my pollen spread with butterflies...

Kathryn said...

Such hard little workers. I love seeing them with all the pollen gathered on their legs. Can't wait for things to start blooming here so that the butterflies and bees return.

Björn said...

Somehow there is a lot to learn from the bees.. but humanity seems to consist of just queen bees... hmmm

Such a tiny insect can inflict a serious sting. Well done on the metaphor.

Sue said...

Bees are fascinating insects. I have a friend who keeps them. Are they still dying out? I had heard that, and it concerns me.
