Bumblebee, Queen of Wildflowers

Spring thaw brings her out of hibernation 
She’s looking for a burrow to call home
To build cups of nectar near a mountain
She is a queen, and more than just a drone.

Black fur, and yellow cover their bodies
As they fly to all the wild flowers
The rainbow colored bird, likes eating bees
The brown bear, an entire nest devours

They fly no more when summer season dies
After workers hatch, the queens homebound
They murder her after all the eggs lie
 Little queens, hiding til spring underground.

One of them will wake up cold and yawning
Finding new flowers to taste in the dawn
