Where the Bee Sucks
By William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 
From “The Tempest,” Act V. Scene 1

WHERE the bee sucks, there suck I:
In a cowslip’s bell I lie;
  There I couch when owls do cry.
  On the bat’s back I do fly
After summer merrily:        5
  Merrily, merrily, shall I live now
  Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.
