Honey Bees

entry picture

A honey comb, they have found,

Rich, and sweet, and golden brown,

And amongst the syrup screen.

Bumble bee has wooed his queen.

Sugar from his kiss she taste,

Slender arms around his waist,

This little bit on which she dined,

Leaves her wanting more she find.

So off he fly to find a bloom.

Nectar from its core he hewn.

To fly right back, set lips upon,

His honey girl, the golden one.

Thanks Ray.
My spelling is really bad for various reasons! Lol. I try not to get hung up on it.
Glad you enjoyed it. It makes me feel good everytime I read it. Different people want different things from poets don't they?
Next poem I will post will be the first one I ever wrote (I've done 8 now). I still love it and don't feel I want to play around with it. Please read it and let me know what you think.
Thanks again dude. Beno

A lovely romantic offering Beno - like a bubble of sweetness which i'm sure would go down well with the ladies. Keep up the variety my friend. There's an interesting kind of suspension of tense that adds to the flavour of it. With respect i'll just mention a couple of typos , 3rd line (amongst) and 3rd line from the end (nectar).

Thanks Keith. After last weeks very sombre post, I wanted to do something very different. I've only started writing recently, so I am trying out lots of different styles. I find I have different audiences to please as well.
This poem, as you said, is just what it is. The girls at work loved it. They're all soppy sods like me! LOL.
