Where The Bee Sucks (from The Tempest) - Poem by William Shakespeare

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:
Merrily, merrily, shall I live now
Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.

    This song is from The Tempest and is sung by Ariel, a sprite in the service of Prospero. A beautiful poem indeed. (Report) Reply
