little honeybee | McKenzie Richardson

little honeybee, let me witness your dance,
lead me to those pollen-soaked petals.

little honeybee, help me harness the sunshine,
build a mansion of hexagonal gold.

little honeybee, show me how to live,
share the secret of your sugary feast.

little honeybee, teach me to be free,
sprout wings and fly with the winds.
