Honey is hard to find in the North.

This story or poem is for logged in supporters only! Here is a short excerpt to whet your appetite:

Honey is sweeter than sweet reed,
rarer and riskier to get.

It's hard for honeybees to survive
in the harsh Northern climate.
There are some hives
scattered in sheltered places
like Smokewater Valley and Apple Cleft,
but they are few and far between.

Author's Notes

This poem came from the August 2013 Muse Fusion. It was inspired by a prompt from Ellen Million.

There are honeybees in Alaska but they have a very hard time surviving the winter.
