Thanking Bees

Written by: Fide Erken

they were there on the water
little bees trying to save their life
some did,the others died
the little girl took a thin wood
in order to take them out
a few days she did so
little bees wanted to thank her
and kissed her hands before they flew

the small pool is still in the garden
but not any bees come there
just their little, sweet remembrance
showing even bees could understand
what love and thanking meant!





From a true story of my childhood
