Bee Joyful.

Blackberry flowers
Open wide
Accepting the bumble
This morn-tide.
Bee industry,
Goes apace,
Pollinating flowers,
Harvest race.
These apart
From the honey bee,
Dancing in sunlight,
Their industry.
Orangy yellow,
Stamens beckon
To the toilers,
A dozen, I reckon.
Huge striped bodies
Hover gaily,
Collecting pollen
In knee pockets, daily.
Wing beats fast,
Eyes cannot see
How fast their wings
Beat, bumble bee.
Their travail
For me later
Blackberry fruit
I joyously savour.
Oh bumble,
Spring, when you I see,
The honest, hard working
Bumble Bee.

Be safe out there, everyone.
