Midge
 
Meanwhile, there is dancing in yonder green bower,
  A swarm of young midges, they dance high and low;
’Tis a sweet little species that lives but one hour,
  And the eldest was born half an hour ago.
        Owen Meredith (Lord Lytton)—Midges.

The midge’s wing beats to and fro
A thousand times ere one can utter “O.”
        Coventry Patmore—The Cry at Midnight.
