With an Eye toward Eden, 
She sits alone. 
Her mind a garden 
Filled with muses blooming, 
Dripping nectar in aromatic words 
For the quill-like tongue of the Bee, 
Who inquires of its chambers, 
Sips its mysteries, 
And reposits honey for progeny.

"With an Eye toward Eden" written by James Robert Kibby
