Here you will find the Poem Upon The Bee of poet John Bunyan
The bee goes out, and honey home doth bring, And some who seek that honey find a sting. Now would'st thou have the honey, and be free From stinging, in the first place kill the bee. Comparison. This bee an emblem truly is of sin, Whose sweet, unto a many, death hath been. Now would'st have sweet from sin and yet not die, Do thou it, in the first place, mortify.
