Little Bessie Bee

    “Little Bessie Bee,” Friend, Oct. 1981, inside back cover

    Little Bessie Bee

    Little Bessie Bumblebee, happy as a breeze,

    Takes home honey to her hive in the trees.

    Little Charlie Chipmunk, his mouth full of nuts,

    Scampers to store them in his private hut.

    Wise Mr. Owl urges them on with a cheer,

    For he knows that winter soon will be here.

    One thing we all know is that food we must store,

    Because without food, life would soon be no more.
