There is a hymn from the Victorian era called "How doth the busy bee." The line continues with "improve each shining hour." I'm looking for the complete text of the verse.

How doth the little busy bee Improve each shining hour, And gather honey all the day From every opening flower! The song was written by Isaac Watts. Source: John Bartlett (1820?1905).
