About this book

A collection of poems celebrating honey bees. The current crisis of health in bee populations make this an important time to recognise their importance to us. With original artwork by Cathy Benson. Fifty pence from the sale of each book will go to research sponsored by the British Beekeepers Association.

"Who more approriate than women poets of today, with their quiet eye for detail, order, industry, living spaces, to explore that parallel world of skeps and keepers, queens and workers, lore, science, craft and myth all the way from Ljubljana to Aberdeen, down the centuries from the middle ages to our own, in a rich honeycomb of bee-poems."
- Anne-Marie Fyfe

"If you’re wanting to buy a present for a friend, try this. The collection is successfully carried by the enthusiasm and fine observation of the writers, and by Cathy Bensin’s delicate drawings. A satisfying anthology to browse in."
- Meg Peacocke
