Oh my God! I see my poem here! Ma'am must have sent it to the newspaper. I never thought I could find my name in a newspaper someday. Look! The title of my poem is Busy Bee.

Busy Bee

It 'll sting', said mother
Let it fly free.

It makes a lovely sound,
How can such a lovely thing
Sting me when I'm around?
