Queen’s Bees Whispered

Golden buzzing
Dark European
Royal native honeybees,
Buckingham Palace
Clarence House,
Superstitious
Tradition.

Royal beekeeper
Whispered
Queen Elizabeth II
Deid bell,
New Master
Hushed tones,
King Charles III.

Black Ribbon
Bowed,
Centuries
Back dating,
Knock knock
Each hive
Wee calm prayer,
“Don’t go
Thrumming sisters,
New master
Worthy keeper.”
