“I am weary of my wisdom, like the bee that hath gathered too much honey.” Is a quote from Nietzsche.
Collage by Laura Bloomsbury be sure to stop by her blog!
The signpost said there were
One and a half miles still to go
But my feet were slow,
Weighed down like a bee
That had gathered too much honey.
With limbs as wooden as a shop-front dummy,
I was determined to reach my destination,
No more procrastination:
Just keep going to the end of the road,
To a place where I could float,
A swaying, bobbing boat,
Drifting out to sea
On a wave of optimism,
Weary of my wisdom.
