The Bee Is Not Afraid

Coneflower and bee...The bee is not afraid of me,
I know the butterfly;
The pretty people in the woods
Receive me cordially.

The brooks laugh louder when I come,
The breezes madder play.
Wherefore, mine eyes, thy silver mists?
Wherefore, O summer’s day?

– Emily Dickinson

  1. No one could describe a scene like this quite like Emily. My coneflowers are a-buzzing with bees, too.

    Emily loved nature and her garden so well — it definitely shows in her poetry. :) It’s a bee-buzzing time of year!

  2. Was she not one of the most amazing writers, and poets ever?

    Beautiful shots, have you been using actions?


    “Actions”? I’m not sure what you mean. But thanks for your visit and your lovely words. And yes, Emily will always be a favourite of mine. :)
