Ten Poems about Bees

Various

Bees work hard, and there is something in their diligence that touches us. Most of us see only a fraction of their absorbing routines but their 'bee-lines' through our parks and gardens are more than enough to suggest their dedication:

"they make a life for themselves that knows

no let-up through hours of exploration and return,

their thighs golden with pollen"

from 'Back they sputter' by Eamon Grennan

Here are poems about getting stung and about a bee-keeping Divinity master in a boarding school whose hives are far more appealing than PE lessons. This heady mix of poems is sure to please anyone who delights in bees, flowers and gardens - or indeed the golden taste of honey!

The selection is introduced by environmentalist and broadcaster Brigit Strawbridge Howard.

Poems by Ciaran Berry, David Briggs, Miriam Darlington, Heid E. Erdrich, Eamon Grennan, Selima Hill, Carola Luther, Paula Meehan, Pascale Petit and Jean Toomer.
