‘Give us a buzz,’ said the lady Queen Bee
‘If you want any honey - especially for tea.
Our honey’s the best and there’s plenty to spare –
And honey for tea is quite lovely to share.’
‘Give us a buzz,’ - yes, she said it again:
‘Our workers are busy in sun, but not rain.
They work in the summer, but winter? Oh no,
For little bees don’t collect pollen in snow.’
‘Give us a buzz,’ – when summer is here –
For with the sun shining my workers appear.
They’ll work in your garden for many an hour,
As they flitter and flutter from every sweet flower.’
‘Give us a buzz,’ said the lady Queen Bee –
And enjoy the good honey – a present from me.’
Goodbye from the Queen and her hard working bees.
How strange would be life without insects like these.
