Poetry of Kansas

Bees In The Linden

Bees in the linden tree
Murmuring, murmuring
Drowsy hummed tunes
That the breezes scarce know.
Bees in the linden tree,
Supping right royally,
Ere, honey-laden--hiveward they go.
Blue summer skies above,
White clouds a-billowing,
Heart upon heart I see,
Under the linden tree,
Lovers a-lingering,
Enact a comedy bees never know.
Under the linden tree,
Kissing right royally,
Ere, all love-laden--homeward they go.
