Usage examples for hive

  1. Other folk are these who follow When the wild- bees come to warn us; These are hive and honey makers, These are busy, banded people, Roaming far to swarm and settle, Working every day for harvest, Fighting hard for peace and order, Worshipping as queens their women, Making homes and building cities Full of riches and of trouble. – The Poems of Henry Van Dyke by Henry Van Dyke
