How doth the little Busy Bee

How doth the little Busy Bee

Isaac Watts

How doth the little busy bee
Improve each shining hour,
And gather honey all the day
From ev'ry open flow'r ?

How skillfully she builds her cell.
How neat she spreads her wax;
And labours hard to store it well
With the sweet food she makes.

In works of labour or of skill,
I would be busy too;
For Satan finds some mischief still
For idle hands to do.

In books, or works, or healthy play
Let my first years be passed,
That I may give for ev'ry day
Some good account at last.


Isaac Watts
(1674 - 1748)
