Paraphrases. II. Telling the Bees
 
Andrew Lang (1844–1912)
 
 
Anonymous
 
 
NAIADS, and ye pastures cold,
  When the bees return with spring,
Tell them that Leucippus old
  Perished in his hare-hunting,
Perished on a winter night.        5
Now no more shall he delight
  In the hives he used to tend,
But the valley and the height
  Mourn a neighbor and a friend.
