Awww Monday June 10, 2013 with some help from Emily and Pooh Bear

I love bees- especially Bumblebees!
Don't buzz off....
Sit down beside the  flowers and hum along!
Or as lovely Emily Dickinson wrote:
( a BIG thanks to Stephen Hayes AKA Chubby Chatterbox for this addition)

Bees are Black, with Gilt Surcingles 
Bees are Black, with Gilt Surcingles --**
Buccaneers of Buzz.
Ride abroad in ostentation
And subsist on Fuzz.

Fuzz ordained -- not Fuzz contingent --
Marrows of the Hill.
Jugs -- a Universe's fracture
Could not jar or spill.

** http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surcingle

Or....as Pooh says:

It's a very funny thought that, if Bears were Bees,
They'd build their nests at the bottom of trees.
And that being so (if the Bees were Bears),
We shouldn't have to climb up all these stairs

I like them, too—I just wish I wasn't allergic to them. :)

Stephen Hayes said...

Emily Dickinson wrote a poem about bees I think you'd like called Buccaneers of Buzz.

Betty Taylor said...

Bumble Bees and yellow flowers! Lovely!! So ultra summery.

Bees are my favorites, although i give them plenty of room. After all, when i see them, there are usually plenty of flowers to be sniffing without me having to sniff the one that bee is in!
