Review of The Hive by Rachel Hadas

The Hive by Rachel Hadas appeared in the Winter 2013 issue of The Virginia Quarterly Review.  Another of Mrs. Hadas' poems, The Red Chair, also appeared in the same issue and was reviewed in Songs of Eretz on January 23, 2013.  The Hive uses, not surprisingly, images related to bees and beehives to describe the loneliness and sense of loss of someone who wants to be with but is ignored by someone else.  A rhyming couplet brings the poem to a powerful conclusion.
