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

A San-San poem – Origins rooted on the Greek Island of Crete
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

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!
Under his tree.
Yes, its time for tea.
The bees work by day and by night
Delicious, Delightful, Honey
And he will enjoy the
