One day a jolly bumble-bee,

In coat of black and yellow,

Got caught inside a window-pane;

The silly little fellow.

He buzzed and buzzed against the glass,

To Guy's great enjoyment,

Who thought to watch this funny thing

Was just the best employment.

But soon to touch those gauzy wings,

Became Guy's great desire,

Although mama had told him that

A bee could sting like fire.

But Guy, silly as the bee,

Paid no heed to mama,

He touched the bee, then gave a howl

Which could be heard afar.

Mama a soothing poultice mixed,

And on his finger laid.

"Another time you'll be more wise,"

Was everything she said.

GROWING UP HANNAH PRAYING BEFORE THE LORD. facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
