A Fable on Friendship-The Strawberry and the Bee
The Strawberry and the Bee –A Fable on Friendship
Hidden away in a magical garden lived a single honey bee.
Busily buzzing along enraptured by the sweetest melody.
Busily transferring pollen from one plant to the next
When he stumbled upon the sweetest strawberry
He had ever laid eyes on.
“I must pick this strawberry and keep it all to myself,” he thought.
Thinking all the while how he could latch it upon his back.
Along came a fuzy wuzzy caterpillar searching for a noonday snack.
He invited himself to join in on the conversation between
The bee and himself.
“I’ve carried many berries upon my back ushering them to my den.”
“If you allow me to assist you with this endeavor you will surely make a friend.
So the busy bumble bee took upon himself a new friendship.
This was a new journey for him for he had no real friends and he
Lifted the strawberry to his new friend’s back.
They marched off together side by side wonderig what adventure would be
What is the moral to this story you might ask?
Cast your burdens on eachother and alwayswalk beside one another.
Let the love of your Creator make your hearts light.
Oh! And finally, always make room in your heart for another friend may come
along when you least expect it!
