What’s happening to all the bees?
If you know do tell me please!
Have they found a better life,
Free from toil and work and strife?
In a field of endless bloom
With lots of nectar, and with room
For all the bees from all the hives –
How I hope they’ve all survived!
As I think about it now,
Perhaps they’ve gone to join the cows
Where grass is green and sky is sunny –
In a land of milk and honey!
