Making honey from past failures

In an earlier post I wrote a poem about our need to be loved and suggested that we want to feel an unconditional love hold us, know our failings but never mention them, make them of no account. The Spanish poet Antonio Machado wrote the poem “Last Night As I Was Sleeping” in which he imagines that there are honey bees inside his heart busy making honey of his old failures.
