| Swarmed like an ant-hill.|
| Swarmed like bees.|
| Swarming after, as a tail follows a comet.|
|As wasps, provokd by children in their play,|
Pour from their mansions by the broad high-way,
In swarms the guiltless traveller engage,
Whet all their stings, and call forth all their rage:
All rise in arms, and with a genral cry
Assert their waxen domes, and buzzing progeny.
Thus from the tents the fervent legion swarms,
So loud their clamours, and so keen their arms.
| Place swarmed like a fair.|
Friedrich von Schiller
