Our BeeBear trills at her very own socially distanced public concert.
Our BeeBear loves to trill and humm and buzz and sing. Usually, when she is fluttering about parks and gardens, there is an appreciative audience. People having lunch, people dozing, doves and magpies picking up the melody. But what is a BeeBear to do at times like this? Have her very own socially distanced concert, of course.
She considers what to wear. It’s a tough business, show business, and you must have ‘The Look’. These shoes are perfect – except for the fit. Perhaps a little large for dancing in. BeeBear sighs and decides she doesn’t need shoes after all.
She checks her reflection in a Leaf-Shadow-Mirror (special kind of mirror for bees). It’s important to look one’s best. Yes, she feels good, she feels confident.
She makes her entrance. It’s always best to start with a grand entrance. She’s dreamed of this big moment.
She’s really here. She’s at the stage! She moves forward a bit so the audience out there can hear better (because she is only small).
Now she begins, and we hear the well loved notes of ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’. Wonderful. Next comes ‘You Are My Honey Beebear’. Oh, Superb. And now, every one’s favourite, “Bee my Baby.’ Brava! Brava!
Second half. And now we enjoy ‘Honey, Honey, Honey, It’s A Pollinator’s World’ followed by an enthusiastic rendition of ‘The Sound of Buzzing’. And to close, what else could it bee but ‘All My Pollen (I Will Give To You)’.
‘Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much.’
