as they must

as they must

A Poem by H.
"

there is that which is immovable.

"
the bee, he
bid the stone to stay
and humbly did
the stone obey

the stone in turn
invited flight
the bee obliged
until the night

but death
& dust did visit
as they must

and there
the bee did lay

beside the stone.
so humble
did the stone
remain
