I've been buzzing around for hours
In and out of the flowers
Having a grand old flit.
I'm all covered in pollen
My legs are quite swollen,
But I do enjoy doing my bit.

I've been under the flowers spell,
Bee-witched by their colour and their smell
But I'm a bit bothered by what's happening to me;
My head's going round and round
Can't quite find the ground,
I'm bee-wildered,feel all at sea...
I'll take just one more dip.
Then I think I'll have a kip
Before I go home to tea...
Oo-er Ive come over all funny,
(Hic) never mind the honey
Think I'm a drunken bum-ble bee.

    Very cute and humorous Sylvia:) I've always wondered what a bee felt like full of nectar. Your poem has exactly the same shape as my latest which caught my eye. God's love!

    Another masterpiece. I agree with James It would make a cool cartoon

    Sylivia, this would make a cool short cartoon. I could picture the story from start to finish >> James

    Thanks for the suggestions on how to achieve center alignment of a poem on poetrysoup. I tried what you wrote and nothing happened. In fact, when I clicked on the green font nothing happened there either. As before, I tried it several ways and nothing worked. ~Jim
