Someone should have

Told the sun worshipper to not go near that hive

Instead they went on a honey hunt – and met some angry bees

Note – they were whisked straight off to First aid –

“Got to tell you” – said the nurse – this is going to hurt…..

Behold – the industrious bumble bee

Until you see him – he just goes about his daily business

Manoeuvring between the flowers, collecting pollen for the hive

Busy little insect is he, creating honey in his hive

Like his brothers and sisters,

Expecting to find rich pickings around the flowers

Honeycomb

On holiday by a grecian water

I saw a flying insect having some tea

it flew for the pollen from flower to flower

occasionally passing a grecian sun or daughter

it was happy to pass through the flowers this bee

till it was time to head for home

where it spend a passing hour

away from the sun making honeycomb.

You’re precious to all,

Shining in the sunlight,

Magpie’s swoop at the sight of you

whilst Men seek out the places you play hide and seek

Not as hard as Iron your qualities valued up and down the land

formed to create a union Very hard to break

Bumblebees strive to create from the pollen they catch

something similar in the garden that match your wonderful colour

And Athletes meet up at great venues around the blue marble

for a chance that their hard work will have you resting around their necks

Happy Winnie-the-pooh day!

I’ll be posting another piece from my notebooks later, but I’ve just been informed – c/o my Facebook and Twitter feeds…that it’s Winnie-the-pooh day.

and being an ardent Ursinian (that’s a fan of the Great Bear) – I thought i’d share this as it popped up on my public feed…. Pooh and one of the bees from the honey tree 🙂

Given I’ve been entitled to doing something special for an hour in the day – I might just peruse my big book of Winnie the pooh stories – by AA Milne, and enjoy a little something sweet while i’m reading it…

Have a great day folks!
