Ten poems about bees gift book


Small gift book Ten poems about Bees by Candlestick Press could be sent instead of a greeting card with the bookmark left blank for your own message.

Contains a 20 page poetry book, bookmark and envelope.

The ten poems in our revised and updated edition offer a taste of the poetry of Bees. 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!

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.

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