Herrick Joyce Mercer Poem Sweet 1926


The Honey-pot of the Bee

EDITORS COMMENTS
- An Illustrated Poem by Robert Herrick, Artwork by Joyce Mercer (circa 1926) This exquisite illustration, titled "The Honey-pot of the Bee," showcases the timeless beauty of Robert Herrick's poem, brought to life through the artistic vision of Joyce Mercer. Dating back to approximately 1926, this illustration transports us to a serene and idyllic world, where nature's simple pleasures are celebrated in verse and image. The poem by Robert Herrick, an English poet born in 1591, invites us to imagine the sweet reward that awaits the industrious bee as it toils away in the heart of the flower. The poet's words, "Awake, awake, I hear her call, And gratefully receive her honey all," resonate with the promise of nature's bounty and the joy of sensory experience. Joyce Mercer's illustration captures the essence of Herrick's poem, with the bee's intricately detailed and elegant honeycomb nestled within a delicate blossom. The warm, golden hues of the honey and the rich, earthy tones of the bee and the flower create a harmonious contrast, reflecting the balance and interconnectedness of the natural world. This illustrated poem is a testament to the enduring power of poetry and art to evoke emotion, transport us to other worlds, and remind us of the simple pleasures in life. Through the collaboration of Herrick's words and Mercer's artistry, we are invited to savor the sweetness of the moment and the beauty of the natural world.
