A swarm of bees in May
Is worth a load of hay;
...
As night returns bringing doubts
That swarm around the sleeper's head
But are fended off with clubs and knives ...
They yelleden as fiendes doon in hell;
The duckes cryden as men would them quell;
...
So haste not,
bright meteor;
waste not strength,
O fair planet,
singing-sister.
Then shall thy meteor glances glow,
And cowering foes shall shrink beneath
...

The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid-air stands still.
While greedy good-doers, beneficent beasts of prey,
Swarm over their lives enforcing benefits ...
Let chaos storm!
Let cloud shapes swarm!
I wait for form.
