Emily Dickinson - The pedigree of Honey

The pedigree of Honey
Does not concern the Bee,
Nor lineage of Ecstasy
Delay the Butterfly
On spangle journeys to the peak
Of some perceiveless thing --
The right of way to Tripoli
A more essential thing.


The Pedigree of Honey
Does not concern the Bee --
A Clover, any time, to him,
Is Aristocracy --

The poems tells the difference between a scientis and a poet. A scientist would look for the chemical reactions that lie under bees producing honey, while a poet would look for the beuty of bees pollinating the flower and making the pentagon patterns in their hives.
