Little The Bee1 - Poem by Clarence Prince

My name is little the Bee
I’m so busy at times I get dizzy
I wish I was Winkle the beetle
He is just sneaky an cheeky
Work makes him fairly sleepy
Not me, as during spring time
I worked with the sunshine
Visiting from flower to flower
Picking up nectar and pollen
Working with all those plants
I'M fulfilling the Lord’s plans
Yearly throughout the spring
I go from flower to flower
Whilst idle Winkle the beetle
Lives freely, looking sleekly
Stays home eats corn flour
I worked with all my power
Being inspired by the flowers
Make me sings buzzing songs
Working daily in spring time
Completing the plans of the Divine
Made me of all insects unique
Says Little the busy little Bee

    A sweet little poem about the little bee and the beetle. One stays
    busy as in busy as a bee and the other one just waddles the
    time away. A wise comparison on nature.

    this will be a perfect poem #2 from YOU for my May,2015, showcase. it is not too 'religious', but does sneak some of that into a nice nature poem.

    in the first half of the poem you do not capitalize winkle or little for the insects' names. i will leave the poem the way you have it on your poem page (unless you ask me to change it at all …later) .

    i'm more like Winkle. i like corn and sleep, but i also eat ice cream and pizza.

    favorite lines:

    Not me, as during spring time
    I worked with the sunshine

    Whilst idle Winkle the beetle
    Lives freely, looking sleekly
    Stays home eats corn flour............. especially freely/sleekly!

    - - - - - - -

    a bright, uplifting poem. thanks. bri :)
