What's that I see? 
A Buzzy Bee 
Just buzzing round 
The apple tree 
With buzzy wings   
It does Bee things 
A humming sound 
Perhaps Bees sing? 

It catches sight
Of something white
A fragrant rose
Is its delight
For food is found
It buzzes down
With its Bee nose
It hunts around
In flowers fair
There's nectar there
It gulps down lots
Without a care
And then it snacks
On pollen sacks
It gathers spots
On its Bee back
Back to its hive
To where it thrives
Where many Bees
Live busy lives
And worker bees
There make honey
They store it up
For their Bee tea
When Hobbits see
A Buzzy Bee
They hide and say
"Please don't sting me"
But bees that buzz
Don't cause a fuss
They buzz away
And won't sting us!

Her parents named her Amorey Lullabella Wildstrawberry Sweetrose which is really nice...but a bit of a mouth-full. For obvious reasons she is more commonly known as Amorey Sweetrose. Her father encouraged her since a very early age to learn to read and write, paint and play musical instruments. Inspired by her mother's love for songs and poems and  great passion for books with illustrations she decided to follow the path of the Minstrel and Scholar.  Miss Amorey recently settled down in a lovely burrow in Brightdown.
