The honey I gather at noon,
I spread on my bread with a spoon.
I haven’t a knife.
Besides, it’s my life,
Not yours, so don’t judge me, you loon!

  1. ive noted something of late
    you’ve developed a liking for dates
    you’ve become very naughty
    sometimes a bit haughty
    watch out for an increase in weight

  2. Are you not trusted with a knife?
    I hope that doesn’t cause strife
    Unless they fear for their life

    I wish I had bee hives and a bee keeper. Close enough is a person who comes to our Farmers Market. Love this poem.
    I also like Cressida’s poem. Honey does stir up a lot of love.

  5. Haha, there’s a sting hidden the lines 😀

  7. Spoon sounds perfectly fine to me. Cheers!

  9. I always enjoy all you work
    (If I didn’t , I’d just be a jerk)
    …. etc.

  10. This made me smile. I prefer a wooden honey dipper myself. I keep one always in my honey jar

  11. I love this! ❤️ Beautifully rendered.

  12. Haha – sometimes you have to have it your way…spoon or knife …enjoying the sweet moments of life

  13. It’s the honey that matters! 🙂

    To each his own, yes MMT, none to bother


  15. You made me smile. Thank you!

  16. the bottle I gently squeeze
    golden honey flows with ease
    now it will not stop, oh please.
    just wish I could lick it off my knees.
