I really like this:

Last night as I was sleeping,

I dreamt --marvelous error!--
that I had a beehive
here inside my heart.
And the golden bees
were making white combs
and sweet honey
from my old failures.

an excerpt from the full poem "Last Night As I Was Sleeping
by Antonio Machado

    That is a nice bit of poetry. We all need some bees.
