A Bee


I watched a bee today
Buzzing by as she traveled from place to place
Mesmerized by her flights grace

Her work she did embrace
A bee works in perfect servitude
Though it may seem crude

Her freedom is in her servitude
And in her inability to choose her destiny
Within the Queens total tyranny

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
