Ode to a Bee



How does it feel to be like a Bee


With the pull of each stroke on paper thin wing


Which scent of which flower to guide each flight


What measuring stick has the Bee to alight


The stick just a leg as thin as a pin


What compass shall guide to her chamber safe


Where is best blossom come rain come shine


Which way to the tree of resin fondue


The scent so strong and the wind so high


The colour so bright and the sky so wide


The compass a miniscule grain of insight


The way quite clear from the map in the head


The resin fondue the taste in the wind


The nectar scent sign to food for a brood


How does it feel to be like a Bee?
