Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


A quote from The Bees, a collection of beautiful poetry by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy. Weaving through the book is its presiding spirit, the bee, symbolizing what we have left of grace in the world and what is most precious for us to protect.

"For this, let gardens grow, where beelines end, sighing in roses, saffron blooms, buddleia; where bees pray on their knees, sing, praise in pear trees, plum trees; bees are the batteries of orchards, gardens, guard them."

10% of proceeds will go to Friends of the Earth to help Save the Bees.

The print can be either A4 or A5.
Frame not included.
