Bumble Bee
by CJ Heck

Today I saw a bumblebee.
He was on a pretty rose.
I leaned in to look at him,
and he stung me on my nose!

I wasnít gonna squish him,
only watch and see Ö
but Iíll never get THAT close again
to a grouchy grumble-bee.

Me neither, CJ !!! And that pic of the bumble bee looks like it was taken one microsecond before the sting! BTW, Fallen Sword is AKA Ted L Glines, and I see that your kids' poems are even better than ever [if that is even possible] :)

I love this..but jst to let you know ..we may well think alike............

Bumble bee in my Gumboots

Busy' buzz' busy' buzz, as I walk along.
I just donít understand: where is it coming from?
Walking up the garden path, going in for tea,
And all the while this buzzing noise,
By the side of me.

Turning looking as I go, puzzled as to what,
But thereís no evidence, of buzzers flying round my spot.
Iím flicking up my tee shirt, Iím checking on my chest.
The buzzing sound becoming louder, this must be a test?

I go into the kitchen, the kettles on for me
If only I could find out more, if only I could see.
Iím looking at my gumboots, and now I fear the worst.
Iíll have to take them off real fast, unless he stings me first.

I take my boot off double quick; Iím hopping on one toe.
A bumblebee flies out with a buzz,
And everyone shouts ohĒ
I donít know how it got there; Iíve really no idea.
Iíve gone all cold and shivery,
My hair stands up with fear.

Iíve never been afraid of bees,
Normally I say,
But now I'm going to check my gumboots.
Every single day!

See what I mean?

It still amazes me how you can, in a few short lines, capture the sweet innocence of the young. I can just see this little tyke rubbing their nose, wondering why that little bee stung them.

OUCH! My step mother got stung in a very delicate area while sunbathing; she still remembers it all these years later~! I have only been stung in the foot, thank goodness, but I did get nailed in the finger by a wasp once. That was worse than the bees! WOUCH!!
