The Bees from the Isle of Lake Innisfree
By Billie Daddario
The bees from Innisfree have gone.
I’m afraid they’ve been killed, poisoned.
They won’t be back. I did it to save my life.
But now, I’m dying too.
They came and gave me nectar,
and I fed on rich honey for a while.
Then I killed them.
Now I need them back.
But it would kill me.
I don’t know how to call them back.
