Little Bee.

Little bee.

 
 
I found a bee, in my garden.
 
 
Caught on a towel. On my washing line.
 
 
 
I said, hey little fella.
 
Lets get you off there.
 
 
 
I helped him off,
 
and he flew off.
 
 
 
Not to far, from my washing line.
 
 
 
to an old incinerator.
 
In my ramshackle garden.
 
Without a care.
 
 
 
I lifted the lid,
 
and found hundreds of bees there.
 
Making their nest where the light shone down.
 
I carefully put the lid down, smiling.
 
 
 
I have a beehive, what a treat.
 
 
Some buzz around me,
 
visiting the diffrent coloured flowers,
 
 
with names, I can't pronounce.
 
 
Some I can't even find in books.
 
 
Possibly from distant and far of places.
 
 
 
I think of the places I've seen,
 
like that.
 
 
As I eat my breakfast,
 
each morning and we meet.
 

 

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Found a beehive in my garden.

Little yellow ones, with white.

 

They seem happy enough,

and they don't bother me.

 

They buzz quietly around the garden.

I barely even notice they are there.

 

I keep an eye out, every few days,

to make sure there ok.

Bees Are Resilient

They hive near plentiful nectar/pollen sites. Beware, wasps will hive near plenty as well. Bee in a towel rescued--U made my day. :D-

The poem is charming, but

The poem is charming, but isn't the gender of a worker bee, which is apparently what you saw, female?  Should the applicable pronouns be changed?

Thanks for your comment.

Thanks for the reply.



No. One of the reasons,
 
I thought the story good to post up,
 
was it being a drone.
 
 
 
Amongst over things.
 
 
Drones go out in the afternoon.
 
 
The bee hadn't collected any pollen,
 
and went back to hive,
 
and it also looked like a drone to me.
 
 
I'm wouldn't call myself,
 
 a fully trained apiarist.
 
 
But if you think only workers,
 
ever go outside the hive.  
 
 
You just learned something.
 
 
But more than that, 
 
its a children's poem.
 
 
Best regards.
