The Bee and the Rose

To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee,
And revery.
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.

Emily Dickinson

We all must think like a bee and create our own “prairies.”  If something as tiny as a bee can take one small clover and make a prairie then surely we must all follow our dreams to create something great.
