Amongst birds & bees there was cheer & delight
A beautiful blue-bell had bloomed last night!
'twas a miracle for the garden that lay barren all life
A beautiful blue-bell had bloomed last night!

This bud lay hidden & had gone unseen
Till last night when it bloomed & created this scene
The birds, the bees, the breeze & the light
All visited this bud that had bloomed last night!

The morning breeze that caressed her cheeks
Swore she's smooth as butter & soft as fleece
Beauty & grace had been packed so tight
In this bud that quietly had bloomed last night!

But clouds so black did gather that noon
All whispered that the blue-bell would perish soon
For the blizzard that kept gathering all might
Would butcher this flower that had bloomed last night!

All the birds and the bees then gathered to pray
For the blue-bell to survive that fateful day
Between prayers and curses began a gruesome fight
To save or kill this bloomer of last night!

Ruthless were the ways of that blizzard
Many perished & the garden lay all battered
But lo! A miracle never-seen was in sight
The delicate blue-bell had survived that night!

This one was for pure fun... Game was to have at least 1 word starting with 'B' in every line... Hence the name 'B-hive' - too many B's :)

He he... tried to be 'non-engineery' 'bout it. Else was so tempted to write 'bout the wind-speeds/cause/motion of the blizzard & the botanical class of the blue-bell ;)
