Flirtation With a Honeybee

IMG_2545

 

Oh, honeybee, you take no interest in me

Darting as you do from flower to flower

Not resting during this tentative hour

Side by side, we toil among the plants

But from you, I barely earn a glance.

 

Oh, honeybee, you take no interest in me

Knowing your sting will hurt me very much

I avoid the possibility of touch

Side by side, we toil among the plants

Meeting in my garden just by chance.

 

Oh, honeybee, you take no interest in me

Unfazed by the scent of my perfume

Your intent is the nectar of the bloom

Side by side, we toil among the plants

Together, but apart, we share a dance.
