Apis Mellifera


Translucent frames filigree design

hooks and grooves to swoop and wind

fresh floral scents beckon to follow their trail

attraction strong of senses prevail

For millions of years as the earth has revolved

Apis Mellifera from Vespa evolved

Revered as a sedulous wonder of nature

A driven force and health benefit creator

Colonial living with strict roles to play

Odour distinct navigating their way

200 beats per second and up to 15 miles per hour

An average daily visit consists of 50-100 flowers

With eyes of five and leg pairs of three

They use polarised ultraviolet light to see

This super-organism better organised than a top corporation

Is essential to the food chain by its role in pollination
