Mrs. Bumble Bee
David Farrar


Where can she be?
Where can she be?
Where can Mrs. Bumble Bee be?
Be her in the flowers?
Be her in the plants?
Be her in the greenhouse?
Playing with the ants?
Be her in the rhubarb?
Be her in the hedge?
Be her in the shrubbery?
Maybe she is dead!!
Or maybe she is hibernating.
If that's how it be,
Then there's no way to know
Where Mrs. Bumble Bee may be!

This poem made me want to skip and laugh. "Mrs. Bumblebee" is a treat to read. It has a delightful rhythm as well as the sights, sounds, and silliness of a wonderful nursery rhyme.

Love the rhythm! This poem made me laugh: When I was backpacking in Grand Canyon last week, we had a bumblebee in our camp for HOURS buzzing around my neon green shirt. THAT's where Mrs. Bumblebee was!

This is great! Children instinctively understand the pure joy of poetry before we "educate" it out of them.

Lighthearted, quixotic, fun.

It's a hit with one elderly child already!

The line "Maybe she is dead" is a shocker, but could be(e)used as a teaching tool about the plight of bees, a most important insect in the scheme of human welfare. All that said, I agree--a fun poem.

What a fun poem! It takes me back to some of the first poems I learned as a child, with simple rhyming and a subject to which children can relate.
