Check out these three poems from Carol Frost, up at Poetry Daily. I have always enjoyed her work:
The honeycomb is made from flowers
and the materials for wax bees gather
from the resinous gum of trees,
while honey is distilled from dew.
At the rising of the constellations
or when a rainbow is in the sky,
. . .
