The Bee Hive : Rannaicheacht Ghairid

The bee hive,
a miracle of strive,
unsurpassed hardwork sublimed,
excellent paradigm live.

Buzzing bees,
dance, hum, ruffle with ease,
gather pollen, drink sap,
fly high, wings flap in breeze.

Amber juice,
the sweet  fruit of produce,
distilled, luscious , pure,
flavour of demure exudes.

The bees thrive,
in adverse conditions survive,
their abode -  the protector,
honey collector, the bee hive.

A Poem for my daughter!

Rannaicheacht Ghairid (ron-a'yach cha'r-rid): Irish poetry form having quatrain stanzas with uneven lines. The first line has three syllables, the other three have seven. The stanza rhymes a a b a, with a cross-rhyme between three and four and the opening word or phrase or line is also included at the end (to end where it began)
A x a
x x x x x x a
x x x x x x b
x x b x x x A


  1. A sweet poem Vandana:)

  2. Very cute poem, I'm sure your daughter likes it. Good on rhymes and form! :)x

  3. What a neat poem! I am a beekeeper so I especially liked this one :)

  4. I like how your poem evokes the busy activity of the bees.

  5. We had bee hives our entire childhood. Then they died either from something. We don't see many any more. Nothing tastes better than freshly harvested honey on a hot biscuit.

  6. Lovely...I knew your daughter would have loved it...Am I right??

  7. Loved the whimsy in this poem - and such a fun verse for your daughter!

  8. they are silent now...the winter having hidden away the bees...
    i rather like their honey though...smiles..

  9. Nobody beats the bees for hard work and we unashamedly rob them as a matter of course! How cruel is mankind! Nice new form to try out! Wonderful write Vandana!
