WOULD that my sire had brought me up to feed
The happy bleaters of the fleecy flocks!
'Twould soothe my sorrow then to breathe the reed
Beneath the shade of elms or hanging rocks.

Now let us fly; and other cities seek
To be our country, dear Pierides:
But I my mind to all will plainly speak—
Injurious drones have harmed the honey-bees.
