THE RIDE

When we take our seats, the bus comes alive
honeybee people swarming to a hive,
buzzing with excitement and disbelief
at doing something to ease our grief.

This week’s Poetry Friday Round-up will be hosted by The Poem Farm.

  1. Sounds like a great collection, and one with many curriculum-integration opportunities. I shared a JPL poem for Poetry Friday this week as well!
