The Great Gaspbee

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub - Quadrille #171:  Poetry is a Kind of Gasp
(posted by whimsygizmo)

They called him
The Great Gaspbee.
He never fumbled,
or bumbled about.
His hive was neat,
and very sweet.  His
honey was thought
superior by the Queen
who had a tendency
to favor him.  Well
loved in the colony
for his sociability,
and song.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
