Honeybee Poetry: The Beeginning

Why these poems are written:

Kids are the honey,

That feeds us to strive

Their addictive nectar

Keeps us alive

They find humor and beauty

In things we ignore

In fantasy, dirt,

Or bugs galore

They are the essence

To keep us young

Whether getting dirty,

Or sticking out tongues

They enhance the soul

With their vibrant laughter

You appreciate life,

Forever after

So, if you are blessed

To have one of your own

Savor the fact

You are never alone!
