Bees by Norman Rowland Gale

You voluble,
Velvety
Vehement fellows
That play on your
Flying and
Musical ‘cellos,
All goldenly
Girdled you
Serenade clover,
Each artist in
Bass but a
Bibulous rover!

From: Gale, Normal, A Country Muse (Second Series), 1895, Archibald Constable and Co: London, p. 111.
