Sticky Honey

The honey from the sugary hive dribbled

Brought a sweetening smell throughout the forest

Calling to the joyful bear

He stopped walking through the plants

He wiggle his nose in the air,

And smiled with glee

Right up above him, he spots the shimmering hive

His heart fills with love as he’s seen something

Than he desires the most

He tried to reach up to the treat

But he couldn’t

He sat underneath the hive, all so sad

A shadow comes by, it was another so-sweet-bear

She gave the sad bear a slice of honeycomb

He smiled and took the piece ever so gently

She had a seat right next to him and ate the honeycomb
