He appears to be dissatisfied with his mundane lifestyle in the city. He would construct a small house on the island out of clay and watles (fences). In addition to having a hive for honey, he would grow nine rows of beans. The hive’s resident honeybees will fill the area with a buzzing noise. The poet in this passage plans to live alone on the stunningly beautiful island. All of this is just a poet’s sweet fantasy born out of disdain for contemporary living.
