Bumble-Bee by Unknown Author


Unknown Author

Bumble-Bee superbly dressed,

In velvet, jet, and gold,

Sailed along in eager quest,

And hummed a ballad bold.

Morning-Glory clinging tight

To friendly spires of grass,

Blushing in the early light,

Looked out to see him pass.

Nectar pure as crystal lay

In her ruby cup;

Bee was very glad to stay,

Just to drink it up.

"Fairest of the flowers," said he,

"Twas a precious boon;

May you still a Glory be,

Morning, night, and noon!"
