Bumblebee Honey.... - Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

Your voice is like music to the ears
your whisper is like the soften breeze
you may wander daily anywhere, but never lose the way
I'll remain still healthy even though I sleep outside in the hay

I don´t get caught a cold easily
since you oft feed me with bumblebee honey
I am now amidst the thousand years cold period
I never get ill even though I'm growing old

as years passed by within many milliard miles
pay attention to nature around ye
the borders turn gold and becoming very old
ye and I won't get sick since we consume
your own bumblebee source honey

ye support me as much as ye can
I have glee such as our beloved mums
both have pleasure on heaven´s spot
ye playeth and studieth whilst I talketh to God

then I will cross the seas again in search of new cod
and bread to nurture the mind and soul
based upon ora et labora (fr. Latin: pray and labor)our beings whole
ye art mine and I am thine with God's support

think ye sayeth whilst I prayeth
con Amor (fr.Spanish: with love)forever more
thou art in mine and I´m in thine
in our own surrounds, I feel fine

ye art God´s child so mild
ye stayeth calm on rivers wild
I pray every day in many ways
Oh Lord, keep mine heart pure on the highways

your voice is like music to the ears
your whisper is like the tender breezes
imagine why I never freeze
you refreshed the day before it seizes

you feed me with strawberry love sweet
bee honey and bumblebee's honey
do not forsake the many blessings
you empower me with your huge showers
bumblebee honey of me….

    A lovely, unique and multifaceted poem.
    A dedication and gratefulness to a loved
    one who is always there to give love, care
    and support.
    A dedication to nature for its many wonders,
    beauty and benefits like bumblebee which symbolizes community
    brightness and personal power.
    Bumblebee produces honey, but they don't produce as much
    honey. This kind of bee is considered as the main pollinators.

    Congratulations Sylvia Frances for Member P.O.D.!
    Did you read your own poem?
    How refreshing it was, NOT to have to listen to the dreadful PH 'Bot Lady', who reads in a monotone, with incorrect emphasis, and even reads the punctuation marks aloud! Thank you for delivering us from being subjected to that!
    (Report)Reply

    Sylvia Frances Chan(10/6/2019 4:26:00 AM)

    Yes, indeed, that sounds so odd to hear the incorrect emphasis and even the punctuation marks are read aloud, what a view here, but I always put off her voice at first, when reading poems. Just put off. Thank you so much for your ardent response and your precious comments, PPoetess!

    Pure love has its source from Almighty which keeps heart, body and mind rejuvenated in all weather and gives strength to bear the harshest cold.
