The Fairies
Anonymous
 
(From Bristol Drollery, c. 1671)

COME my Jenny, pretty one,
Thee and I will all alone,
Hie to yonder Fairy ground,
Where last night they tripped around:
And (free from Mortal eyes) by stealth,        5
There skipped and danced each little Elf.
There, on the grass we’ll sport and play,
And thou shalt prove as light as they.
If Corydon and Phillis spy,
Or any bold intruding eye;        10
We’ll pray transforming Gods above,
That we (like those) may Fairies prove.
And when we’ve changed shapes and hue,
We’ll haunt, and fright, and pinch them too.
