Ten Poems about Bees

Bees work hard, and there is something in their diligence that touches us. Most of us see only a fraction of their absorbing routines but their ‘bee-lines’ through our parks and gardens are more than enough to suggest their dedication:

 

“…they make a life for themselves that knows
no let-up through hours of exploration and return,
their thighs golden with pollen…”

from ‘Back they sputter’ by Eamon Grennan.

 

Here are poems about getting stung and about a bee-keeping Divinity master in a boarding school whose hives are far more appealing than PE lessons. This heady mix of poems is sure to please anyone who delights in bees, flowers and gardens – or indeed the golden taste of honey!
