I want to touch your petals,
I want to smell your fragrance,
I want to taste your nectar,
And I want to steal your heart.

I am a bee,
Wise and wild,
Beast and bold,
Savage and stubborn,
Ardent and fervent.

For to impress you only,
O rose, I buzzed this poem,
In a hope,
For a chance,
That you may let me kiss.

Said the bee to the rose.
~Sw. Chidananda Tirtha
