Velvety
Vehement fellows
That play on your
Flying and
Musical cellos"

"Come out of my foxglove
Come out of my roses
You bees with the
Plushy and
Plausible noses!"

Powdery
Pastoral bandits,
Who gave you your
Roaming and
Rollicking mandates?"

I hear the level bee:
A jar across the flower goes,
Their velvet masonry"

"How doth the little busy bee
Improve each shining hour,
And gather honey all the day
From every shining flower!"

~Isaac Watts

"The pedigree of honey
Does not concern the bee;
A clover, any time, to him
Is aristocracy."

~Emily Dickinson, The Pedigree of Honey

 
Art by Vicky Knowles






"Bees do have a smell, you know,
and if they don't they should,
for their feet are dusted with spices
from a million flowers."

~Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine











"And pray, who are you?
Said the violet blue
To the bee, with surprise
At his wonderful size,
In her eye-glass of dew."

~John B. Tabb, The Tax-Gatherer


Art by Monique Morin Matson







"Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
This is the song of the bee.
His legs are of yellow;
A jolly, good fellow,
And yet a great worker is he."

~Marian Douglas, The Song of the Bee



Art by Lynn Dobbins





"Poets share, and poets do
Like busy bees,
They make honey out of words,
Sometimes
But never money.

~Sandra Feldman, Honey Bees and Money



Art by Penny Stewart






"Come here, little bee
There are fresh flowers by me;
Come, and just let me see
How your honey is made!
'I can't, for I fear
That, for coming too near,
I should pay very dear,
So I can't - I'm afraid!'"

~Hannah Flagg Gould, The Bee and the Child



Art by Vicky Knowles
