Of Seeds and Bees

Jared’s brother and Brother Brigham,
mighty men, fled Babel and destruction 
with family, friends.
Passing through wind driven swells—
dark ocean depths and waves of prairie grass— 
they sought milk and honey lands 
broad enough to nourish a vast posterity 
and keep a covenant people.
They carried with them hope, faith, seeds 
and, to secure this fertile future, bees.
And they did also carry with them deseret, which, by interpretation, is a honey bee; and thus they did carry with them swarms of bees, and all manner of that which was upon the face of the land, seeds of every kind.   (Ether 2:32)
