“Your Guttering!”

“Your guttering

is spluttering!”

said a fluttering butterfly

that was just passing by.

I looked,

and it was.


“Why?” I questioned.


“Bee cause it is.”

buzzed a busy bee.


Which made much sense to me.

‘As I walked around with a sprig of Buddleia in my hat’

As I walked around

with a sprig of Buddleia in my hat

a bee hopped on board,

then a butterfly,

then more

and more

and more,

until I had become a veritable charabanc

for the flying fraternity –

and a sight to see I was at that.

BBC (the Buzzing Bee Corporation)

A Bee

once said to me,

‘Buzz off!

Can’t you see

I am Busy –

now let me Bee.’

And so I did.

Bee on a Leaf

I saw a bee upon a leaf,

which gave me great belief

that a bee can be upon a leaf

and the leaf can bee

happy, too.

Barnaby the BananaBee

Barnaby, the BananaBee

was the first of his kind

in history.

Never before,

upon any shore,

had a BananaBee like Barnaby

been seen.

Bee Kind

It isn’t difficult to be kind

to bee kind,

and you really don’t

have to be cruel

to gruel;

or leave a friend behind

when they are unable to find

a spring with which to unwind;

and many a worm will turn

from doing evil

to a passing weevil;

it’s not hard

to discard

the loyalty card

when it’s full to bursting,

in return for a Grecian urn,

if you are owed two,

or none at all

by a tall nun.

So, be kind,

and bee kind

will bee fine.

A Bee and a Butterfly went to Sea.

A Bee and a Butterfly went to sea

in a dark blue sailing boat;

whilst on the sea,

they drank green tea,

and had no adventures to note.


But, on the way back,

the sky turned black,

the boat capsized and sank.

‘Oh, no!’ you cried, ‘They must have died!

Or what Saviour can we thank?’


However, the Bee and the Butterfly

did not die,

they simply flew away,

to sail again, upon glistening seas,

on some such other day .

There was a B

There was a ‘B’,

an ‘e’

and another ‘e’.

All flying around my head.

It didn’t bother me…


Letters are harmless,

because – here’s the thing –

unlike Bees,

they just don’t sting.

A Bee in a Bandana

I’ve never seen a Bee in a Bandana,

though, to be honest,

I haven’t observed every Bee

that is, or was, or is yet to Bee.

Perhaps, a Bee on a Banana

is a more likely possibility,

I shall pop a Banana and a small Bandana out,

and see if a Bee cares to alight on the one,

and / or don the other.

They do say, that a Bee

is less than likely to bother

wearing clothing of note

unless it’s a pollen coat

or a black and yellow stripy jumper.
