The pedigree of Honey by Emily Dickinson
"The pedigree of Honey" can easily be seen as both a religious poem and a love poem. However, since Dickinson does not capitalize "him", I think it is safe to presume she is talking about a mortal man.
In this case, the man is a bee who doesn't care about the quality of honey (love) the clover will produce (have), or even what the class of clover (woman) since it is all seen as "aristocracy" to him.
