Bees in the Spring

Forming a queue

the bees get to work

so many places to go

can’t afford to shirk

Skills have been sharpened

old teaching the young

working quickly

making honey sweet for the tongue

A wise queen pundit

stays at home

trusting her drones

while she sits on the throne

The result of the work

is seen in late spring

tiny fruits form

trees filled with bling

Hard and careful work

something to score

produce and honey

a sweet reward
