Animal Kingdom 4 – Bee: Industry


Sri Chinmoy wrote a fascinating little compendium on the spiritual meaning of animals which was published by Agni Press in 1973. Today’s poem features the bee.

Bee: Industry

Bee, my bee,
Your day and night
And your patience-industry
Have no respite.
Hard you endeavour
To bring nectar
From the core of your service-tree.
You always don
The robe of fruitful victory.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
