National Poetry Day Message Poem to a Bee, Liz Brownlee

Dear Bee


Thank you for your friendly buzz

that lets us know you’re near to us;

for all those busy daytime hours

you spend pollinating flowers,

helping grow the food we eat;

for gathering the nectar sweet

and making honey, bright as trumpets

to drip from our toasted crumpets;

and though a weapon on the wing

thanks for preferring not to sting.


Yours, Me
