Sitting on the patio,
enjoying a cool fall breeze
with the sun shining;
I heard a loud buzzing sound coming
from the elaeagnus bushes.
Buzzing in bushes, buzzing in trees.
Buzzing around wherever they please.
There's nothing so sweet as a honeybee!
BEES, BEES, BUMBLE BEES!!
While taking pictures of these wonderful pollinators,
this rhyme went through my head
over and over again,
as I remembered a former 1st grade class play.
All the students repeated this poem
while half of them buzzed around the stage with wings, and the other half stood still with a halo of flower petals around their face.
At the end of the poem, kinda like musical chairs,
the bees would stand next to a flower!!
Wonder if my students ever think about this play when they hear the buzzzzing of a bee?
