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?
