This poems is about bees looking for honey. I love when the bears eat the bees and the honey. I love poems. Call me!!!

man or nature
Given to great thought of surroundings, this poem equals the human companionship to nature about. Messy, gestured and yet separate that one must make a choice. To be a companion with someone or alone with nature. Equal yet with notice.

The last stanza of the poem ends in "or love, either". By separating love from "curse, fist, threat" Plath implies that love is a totally different game from the others but equally as threatening.
