蜂飼いは花の季節になると北上する花前線にのって
毎年みつばちと花畑を追う旅に出ます
わたしはある時
お話を集めるみつばちを飼う蜂飼いが
木箱をしょって旅をしているところに出会いました

Every year, with the coming of spring, beekeepers set out on their journey with honeybees.
They move from one flower field to another as the blooming 'front' goes northward.
One day, I met a beekeeper travelling with a wooden box on his back.
His bees collect stories instead of honey.
