Artist's Description

This photo of a bumblebee hanging from a summer blossom goes well with the words of my favorite poet, Emily Dickinson, who described fame as a bee. Like a bee’s song, fame has its happy aspects, but it also has its sting and its share of pain; finally, it has its wing. As fast as it comes, it can readily disappear! Good food for thought for anyone who craves fame!

Ironically, Emily Dickinson never knew either the song, the sting,or the wing of fame. She lived as a recluse, hidden from the public eye, all her life. It wasn’t until after her death that her huge inventory of poetry was discovered and she attained world renown as one of the most gifted poets of all time. Quite interesting that she who desired nothing of fame in life achieved it posthumously!
