Sample text

Grumbling, groping, she went round and round. * Now the male (5) bee realised how it was that the female could not see the sky and so fly home. * He darted here and there, crossed over to where she was, edged along to come to rest near her and buzzed to make her hear. * The female heard him and flew after him, closely following him, just as was her desire. * The prince showed this to his chief wife. "Look at the bee," he said, "He is leading the female bee in flight.
