What a wasp!

The first time we realised we weren’t alone,

we had company,

was when we saw.

the massive tubular house,

you built on our balcony.


You came inconspicuously,

almost like a thief,

making us miss out on,

your house building spree!

By the time we noticed,

you had made yourself a bungalow,

with inbuilt rooms,

for your larvae to grow!

Not knowing who you were,

we thought you were a bee,

bursting with joy,

we clapped our hands in glee!

Of course our joy wasn’t,

without its share of greed,

it was more in anticipation of pollination,

for our flowers and mini trees!

Our grand plans came to naught,

when you arrived on the scene,


we realised you weren’t a bee,

but from the wasp family!

we still didn’t know,

what your name was,

so we searched Google high & low,

for the yellow and black striped wasp,

& there it was,

in front of our eyes,

the ‘mud dauber wasp’,

who prefers insects and flies!

Your trademark mud house did you in,

we finally had a name,

to begin!

It is entertaining to watch you,

come visit your house,

stuff in the food,

and fly about,

We can’t wait for the day,

when your little ones will grow,

big enough to fly out alone and  go,

till then you needn’t worry,

your  house is safe with us,

you can fly away to safety,

no anxiety or fuss!

  1. Have to confess a hatred and fear of Wasps – your words made me shudder – Now we had some Honey Bees thisyear, so soft and gentle creatures – more than welcome to have around – CheersJ
