Virgil: Georgics Book IV Bee-Keeping (Apiculture) Written 29 B.C.E.

A link to the entire translation is : http://www.poetryintranslation.com/PITBR/Latin/VirgilGeorgicsIV.htm#_Toc534524378



Here is the introduction:

BkIV:1-7 Introduction



Next I’ll speak about the celestial gift of honey from the air.

Maecenas, give this section too your regard.

I’ll tell you in proper sequence about the greatest spectacle

of the slightest things, and of brave generals,

and a whole nation’s customs and efforts, tribes and battles.

Labour, over little: but no little glory, if favourable powers

allow, and Apollo listens to my prayer.
