Honey, ever so sweet
Never missing breakfast
together just two of us
It's heavenly, it's blissful

Ever like two young lovers
rekindling back the old flames
of love nurtured through the years
Never another moment to match

What do we have here?
Honey and toast the most
healthy of foods don't you think!
Yes, nectar of sorts of varied flowers

Regurgitation and evaporation
A process acted through the ages
The hard working honey bees
In honeycombs storing them as honey

Human kind with all good intentions
Rob them of their nature's best
But they slave and slog still on
Injustice not a restriction

  1. fresh honey...and honey comb...i love it...we get some each year from the market...its great with butter on toast...mmm....

  2. Honey has such a great taste..I like to put a bit in my tea..we need to preserve the bees as they do so much work. interesting poem

  3. regurgitate, evaporate - sounds like processed food to me

  4. I remember when I first learned how honey is made and I could not bring myself to eat it for a long, long time! So many uses for it though, and those bees do work hard!

  5. I love fresh honey ~ Too bad for the bees though ~

  6. This makes me miss the bee hives I used to have on my old property: it was wonderful to have the different seasons' tastes in jars, a bit like different wine years.

  7. nice...love me some fresh honey...and sad about the bees getting less and less...just read a report in the newspaper the other day

  8. honey adds a lovely taste..
    once i had the opportunity to taste freshly picked honey..
    it was yum..
    poor bees, busy in their world
    n we r blindly busy in our own

  9. i love honey, hope the bees won't all die out now

  10. I find honey a little to sweet, so for me I can spare some sympathy for the bees, who also help us fill the orchards with fruit.

  11. I have never really developed a taste for honey..but I really enjoyed you sharing your love & long history of enjoying it!

  12. A certain kind of honey I like, but actual eating kind i never seem to strike.

  13. Sweet and sticky... love this, it's full of flavor.

  14. Lovely write, Hank. I like honey and toast. I have been meaning to get over to see you. How are you doing?


  15. What a sweet topic! It does kind of make it sound like a processed food though with that regurgitation going on. :-)

  16. My mom always put honey in our tea when we were sick, lovely write Hank.

  17. Delicious poem! My husband's parents have their own bees so I get fresh honey whenever I want, it is a amazing =)

  18. Yes! (Might just go and make a slice of toast and honey for my morning tea now.)

  19. Will you be back in time for tomorrow's great occasion?

  26. Howdy, I do believe your web site could possibly be having internet
    browser compatibility problems. When I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening
    in IE, it has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you
    a quick heads up! Aside from that, fantastic site!
