What bird makes claim to all God's trees?
What bee makes claim to all God's flowers?
Behold their perfect harmonies!
Their common hoard, their common hours!
Say, why should man be less than these,
The happybirds, the boarding bees?
— JOAQUIN MILLER, The Building of the City Beautiful, Chap. XX , p. 162, Third Edition.
