THE SEX OF BEES
The sex of bees
is hard to see
But he can tell
and so can she
The Queens a very busy soul,
She has no time for Birth Control.
And this explains in times like these,
Why there are so many sons of bees.
This was exchanged by Myrtle Hutt, a local Sequim pioneering woman.

“Place a beehive on my grave
And let the honey soak through.
When I’m dead and gone,
That’s what I want from you.
The streets of heaven are gold and sunny,
But I’ll stick with my plot and a pot of honey.
Place a beehive on my grave
And let the honey soak through.”
― Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees
