The Bee Poem
A poem is a busy bee Buzzing in your head. His hive is full of hidden thoughts Waiting to be said.
His honey comes from your ideas That he makes into rhyme. He flies around looking for What goes on in your mind.
When it's time to let him out To make some poetry, He gathers up your secret thoughts And then he sets them free.
