Hollyhocks and Aftershocks – #poetry #AugustWriting

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos


Bees are drawn to flowers

Summer blooms, among the trees

Their gentle fragrance lingers

As it wafts in the morning breeze

But you must be extra careful

Don’t get to close to the Hollyhocks

The bees won’t like you snooping

Be prepared for an aftershock

No, not the thorns on the stems

Although, they will prick you, too

You see, honeybees give no warning

And they’ll sting, it’s what they do

But be aware, these bees are the only ones

To die after they leave their stinger

We need to take good care of them

Or our Earth may no longer linger
