The rose and the bumble bee


M A Heathcote

Love must have its tempest
Said the bee to the rose
love have its passion-freed,
before its midnights close,

yes love must have its passion
said the rose to the bee
love must unburden of a fashion,
if its ever to be free

but, isnít that our loves betrayal,
said the bee to the rose
peering beneath her petals veil,
before whisking to his toes

your love is truly a tempest,
said the rose to the bee
but Iím the queen most royalist,
and sir, this we shall agree

love must have its tempest
and this is plain to see
why passions flame did bless
the rose and the bee
