Updated on March 28, 2013
Good bye my friend and thank you for this last rose.
Good bye my friend and thank you for this last rose.

H O N E Y B E E S

O N L Y a small portion does remain.

N E V E R will return when they are gone.

E M PT I N E S S will be the refrain.

Y O U and I may search in vain.


B U T alas, we shall not find.

E V E R Y soul shall to heaven flee.

E V E R Y memory left behind,

S O R R Y F U L, though we all may be.

      Please make a list of the ways we may protect our honey bees. Much appreciated. whonu

      I agree Silkekarina. My poem seemed to get your attention and perhaps others will respond and also take part in doing something to help preserve our bees. I have had many responses and praises for this simple poem and it was my intent to draw this attention! Thanks for responding. whonu

      Poems for the honey bees? How about concrete action? But that would get in the way of our comfortable lives. We need the car to fetch our groceries and the aeroplanes to go on holiday (or vacation as you call it). Are we going to cut down on the use of power stations or what about those petrol powered lawn mowers that are retrieved from the sheds regularly on Sunday morning? How about the factory exhaust fumes and the soil pollution, not to mention the electronics industry that churn out new computer systems several times a year? Where do the old computers end up, definitely not all in the third world? As the only specie with actual thinking and reasoning brainpower, one would assume we would be able to use our brains to prevent catastrophes not just come up with remedies for our stupidity. We can, of course, wait for The Almighty to give us the answers, but I thought that was the reason why he gave us functioning brains.

      Yes, it's a sad commentary, but so true. And as the population grows we need more honey, not less.

      Oh, my. I didn't realize that they were this close. Luckily, I know a few people that keep hives of them, so they won't be gone for a while(I hope).

      About 20% are surviving compared to 1940s tabulations. This is due to pesticides, weather changes, viral problems, African bees interference, and pollution of the atmosphere and water, as well television, telephone towers that kill the bees when emitting high frequency waves.There is much to be done to improve these conditions and the bio-domes may help a lot. whonu

      This is so sad. Are the honey bees really on their way out? We have bee farms all over Central Florida.
