Where the Bee Sucks is from Shakespeare’s play The Tempest. In the play, it’s sung by the fairy spirit Ariel. You can read this lovely song below and listen along to two different renditions of it – one recited, the other sung.
Where The Bee Sucks (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.
