I think that in the discussion of natural problems we ought to begin not with the Scriptures, but with experiments, and demonstrations.
Fairy Land iv
by William 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.
