   English Poetry I: From Chaucer to Gray.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
92. Fancy
 
William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 
 
TELL me where is Fancy bred,
Or in the heart, or in the head?
How begot, how nourishèd?
        Reply, reply.
 
It is engender’d in the eyes;        5
With gazing fed; and Fancy dies
In the cradle where it lies:
Let us all ring Fancy’s knell;
I’ll begin it,—Ding, dong, bell.
        —Ding, dong, bell.        10
