#Beeinthecity #Manchester #Buzz
A poem in honour of those colourful bees currently nesting in my city
The hive will be in Gtr Manchester till 23rd September – it’s well worth a visit.
(for those who haven’t read my #beeinthecity posts – they’re artworks!)
Banks-B , #Beeinthecity on Manchester’s Market Street
The hive arrived
Home for some bees
With artistic flair
City streets, with a
Hint of colour
Covering the sights
Of the county
North to south
From Salford’s quayside
To Manchester’s airport
