This and That Items
Poem by Thelma Metts
Seems itís saying, ďCome follow me.
Iíll show you our house and our family too.
Welcome, come in, they want to meet you.
These are our nurse bees on this floor
And upstairs we have several more.
On this floor is our food we store to eat
And some to share, itís a tasty treat.
These are all my family buzzing about
We work here, and in the fields we scout
For colorful blossoms you grow in the soil
For hours and hours we hum and toil.
Our life is short and we donít waste our time
We search and hunt for the flowering vine.
Oh, this is our Queen you havenít met yet
And the drones are few, I was about to forget.
Iím so glad you came so you could see,
Youíve heard it said, ďBusy as Bees.Ē
Please take the time to come back next year
To meet our new family, to taste and to share.Ē
