Death of a Bee

We take this opportunity to commemorate the life of a dear friend, the honeybee. He lived a short but busy life. His favorite activity was collecting nectar from the little white clover blossoms growing amongst the grass.

Sadly, he was stepped upon by a gentle giant. Pooh was innocently walking in his yard when he was surprised to find he had stepped on his dear friend. The pain in his foot took precedence for a short time.

However, soon he remembered his friend, the honeybee, and went to look for him. He was much saddened by his friend's demise. The honeybee was laid to rest upon the sidewalk.

Pooh's brother, Tigger, happily took great care to shoo away the looters, also known as ants.

Kind words were spoken by all. We remembered him fondly and spoke of his hard work and short life. Pooh even spoke on how his friend had given up his life to defend himself against an unknown enemy. Eventually, he was left in peace.

Poor little worker bee . . . to give Pooh perspective y'all could read about Winnie the Pooh and the black rain cloud! LOL!
