Bear Befriends Bees

I try to make friends with so many of the forest bees

Hoping they won’t sting me when I climb their trees 

I do get a bit nervous when they start circling my head

They should know by now I give them nothing to dread


I’m not sharing any of my collected bees honey

And I’m not gathering it either to make money

I’m storing it for when we’re deep into winter

It’s wise to plan ahead so I’ll always have dinner


What I am wondering is where do my busy bee friends go

When trees have no leaves and the grounds covered with snow

They tell me they stick closely together in their insulated hive

And I gave out a roar when they said they eat honey to survive
