The author describes the suite in different movements, without interruption:
1. Allegretto quasi vivo, “bumble-bee flight, song of the hoopoe” and “the poet threshes a melody”. The movement continues in a contrapuntal form expressing the compilation of the poet’s ideas.
2. Andante con espression, strings alone – “Song of Melancholy”, followed by a “vivo con fuoco” which represents the beating of the heart.
3. Allegro vivo, “the hoopoe brings happiness back to the poet”, and “the poet’s song follows in C major”.
4. Presto, “bumble-bee flight and the poet’s nervousness, the song of the hoopoe” and the suite ends with a phrase of “the poet’s song”.
