    'I Tell The Bees'

    He left for good in the early hours with just
    one book, held tight in his left hand:
    The Cyclopedia of Everything Pertaining
    to the Care Of the Honey-Bee; Bees, Hives,
    Honey, Implements, Honey-Plants, Etc.
    And I begrudged him every single et cetera,
    every honey-strainer and cucumber blossom,
    every bee-wing and flown year and dead eye.
    I went outside when the sun rose, whistling
    to call out them as I walked towards the hive.
    I pressed my cheek against the wood, opened
    my synapses to bee hum, I could smell bee hum.
    ‘It’s over, honies,’ I whispered, ‘and now you’re mine.’

    'The Flower'

    I am the flower, the air is God's spirit, and the Earth is my faith

    God's grace is the water, the rain is His Mercy, and the sun is His love.

    The wind is His touch, the bee is my pastor, and my beauty is my gift to the world.

    I am nature's art. I am nature's highest calling.

    I'm meant to bloom, to unfold...to allow the bee to help me create more life, as my roots grip the flesh of the planet reaching for the light...I sway like a dance from the turn of space breathing after the blessing of another release of the clouds knowing,
    KNOWING, that I will bless every soul who looks at me if they only stop to smell the roses...

    "Natures Way"

    Upon a nice mid-spring day,
    Let's take a look at Nature's way.
    Breathe the scent of nice fresh air,
    Feel the breeze within your hair.

    The grass will poke between your toes,
    Smell the flowers with your nose.
    Clouds form shapes within the skies,
    And light will glisten from your eyes.

    Hear the buzzing of the bees,
    Climb the tallest willow trees.
    Look across the meadow way,
    And you shall see a young deer play.

    Pick the daisies as they grow,
    Watch a gentle cold stream flow.
    Know the sounds of water splash,
    Catch its glimmer in a flash.

    When altogether all seems sound,
    Lay yourself upon the ground.
    Take a moment to inhale,
    And listen to Nature tell her tale...

    A big bee, a golden furry fellow, crept into a freesia, and the delicate flower leaned over, swung, shook; and when the bee flew away it fluttered still as though it were laughing. Happy, careless flower!

    Long ago Apollo called to Aristæus,
    youngest of the shepherds,
    Saying, "I will make you keeper of my bees."
    Golden were the hives, and golden was the honey;
    golden, too, the music,
    Where the honey-makers hummed among the trees.

    #3 Yes, especially a poem that makes you think and is so well written. Of course Susan Sontag wrote against the perils of interpretation. Not where it advanced context but where it stifled meaning relevant to our age and time. See the PDF and part 4 of Sontag where she says

    QUOTE START : "In a culture whose already classical dilemma is the hypertrophy of the intellect at the expense of energy and sensual capability, interpretation is the revenge of the intellect upon art. Even more. It is the revenge of the intellect upon the world. To
    interpret is to impoverish, to deplete the world—in order to set up a shadow world of “meanings.” It is to turn the world into this world.(“This world”! As if there were any other.) The world, our world, is depleted, impoverished enough. Away with all duplicates of it, until we again experience more immediately what we have." : QUOTE END - SUSAN SONTAG

    Henry Van Dyke - White Bees

    CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    07/08/2017 #1 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    I think @Dean Owen is going to love this particular poem because even though the opening six lines is all about honey-makers, the rest of Henry Van Dyke's poem "White Bees" tells us the mistake Apollo made in calling Aristæus to manage his bees.

    It turns out that not only did Aristæus loiter and not pay attention to the needs of the bees, he got sidetracked by a nymph called Eurydice and he followed her but the nymph trod on a serpent and she vanished.

    By the time Aristæus came back to the bees under his care, they had all gone and here Henry Van Dyke writes

    "Lonely Aristæus, sadly home returning, found his
    garden empty,
    All the hives deserted, all the music fled.

    Mournfully bewailing, —“ah, my honey—makers,
    where have you departed?” —
    Far and wide he sought them, over sea and shore;
    Foolish is the tale that says he ever found them,
    brought them home in triumph,
    Joys that once escape us fly for evermore."

    HAPPY ENDING?
    Now Apollo did not let Aristæus remain a lost soul in a garden he did not belong and so writes Henry Van Dyke:

    "Till the great Apollo, pitying his shepherd, loosed him from the burden
    Of a dark, reluctant, backward—looking mind."

    "White Lily Worries"

    In the meadow one white lily
    Stood patiently staring at me.
    Her leftmost petal was chewed
    By a beetle who sought fragrant food.

    The lily asked me politely
    If the marks diminished her beauty.
    She said she wanted to be perfect
    For her honeybee suitor insect.

    She told me her honeybee,
    Was gentle as could really be.
    "He would never sting a man,
    "He's been sweet as nectar since our love began."

    She turned her leaves to the sun,
    "I must eat before he comes,"
    She said as she drank. "Still,
    "He'll notice," remarked the daffodil.

    Hush, I chided, he'll understand.
    It's not her fault where the beetle chose to land
    And take his meal. Not her fault it stole
    He white purity and left these holes.

    Honeybees will buzz no matter,
    Seeking lily's honey to make them fatter.
    The holes on your leftmost petal
    Do not turn you from lily to nettle.

    The honeybee is the only bee who die after their sting because the barb of the sting and even the abdomen of the honeybee remain in the skin of the stung. This means string of the honeybee is to protect the rest of the hive. The idea of stinging does not sit well in a marketing context and it is a death-sentence in the honeybee community, and so it is not really a great metaphor unless one really wants to operate in a sting operation. I get our stings can be a metaphor for attention but I am not writing this to die for attention, I explore this because it lets me think about these things. What modern marketing needs is less string and more honey. People (that being us) are wearing thin of the perpetual marketing machine, they do still get stung by it but there is evidence that the world of consumption is asking questions about a smater life these days, far more than they are responding to suggestions of a better product.

    Where the Bee Sucks...

    Where the bee sucks, there suck I:
    In a cowslip’s bell I lie;
    There I couch when owls do cry.
    On the bat’s back I do fly
    After summer merrily.
    Merrily, merrily I live now
    Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.
