Human hope is like a buzzing bee,
collects nectar day and night-
even from the dry, drooping and dropped flowers
it tries its best to collect.
Collection in midst of loss is its habit.
It also makes sweet honey to fill the hive-
the human heart:
this keeps the heart beating
even when the body becomes still
due to the approach of despair.
