Rhymes With "E": Bee Symphony
There was a bee named Sarah-Lee,
emcee of Honey Hive’s whole symphony.
She waved her wings to the count of three,
then bee-bands played their melody.
They’d tuned their keys to major C,
played their parts in harmony,
and when they hit the apogee
the crowd went on a buzzing spree.
For those who travelled cross country,
devotees gathered up in her tree,
were not let down, were not displeased
by maestra Lee’s music mastery.
To Be a Bee
What I would give, to be a bee
is more than just, a minor fee.
It would be, so very free
to zip and buzz, and be happy.
I'd work all day, with such glee
to make the world, sweet honey.
When they wondered, who held the key,
I would know, that it was me.
And if I met, that special she
I would kneel, down on a knee
and ask her if, she would be
the one who I, could marry.
Then I would have, her live with me
and we would make, a wee baby.
We'd have a home, up in a tree
just me and my, bee family.
Bill the Bee
Bill the bee was born happy. Queen's only son, so carefree, he buzzed around quite merrily.
Though, holed up in his honeycomb, he soon grew bored and set to roam. Up and out the hive he flew, into a brilliant sea of blue.
Then he met a queen named She and together ruled her colony. Now, they live in Jubilee.
