This work has reached the exceptional level
Bee sure to catch his performance this Spring

Awesome Aerosaltant

by Y. M. Roger

The Bee Contest Winner 

Amazing aeronaut, this guy –
The dude does so much more than fly!
He’ll stop and start and hover there
Then zip away to who knows where…
He moves those wings so fast I’ll bet
You’ll think you hear a string quartet,
But violins don’t swoop or dive –
They certainly don’t plunge and rise…
This clever bloke who works all day
Has perfected air ballet –
Though pollen is his main pursuit,
His flying skills are absolute…
Sweet as honey… Mmm, that’s his thing
And his finale? Quite a sting!
