Beetle
 
O’er folded blooms
  On swirls of musk,
The beetle booms adown the glooms
  And bumps along the dusk.
        James Whitcomb Riley—The Beetle.
  1
And often, to our comfort, shall we find
The sharded beetle in a safer hold
Than is the full-winged eagle.
        Cymbeline. Act III. Sc. 3. L. 19.
  2
And the poor beetle that we tread upon,
In corporal sufferance finds a pang as great
As when a giant dies.
        Measure for Measure. Act III. Sc. 1. L. 79.
