A Fairy Glee
By Eugene Field (1850–1895)
 
FROM the land of murk and mist
  Fairy folk are coming
To the mead the dew has kissed,
And they dance where’er they list
  To the cricket’s thrumming.        5
Circling here and circling there,
Light as thought and free as air,
Hear them cry, “Oho, oho,”
As they round the rosey go.
 
Appleblossom, Summerdew,        10
  Thistleblow, and Ganderfeather!
Join the airy fairy crew
  Dancing on the sward together!
Till the cock on yonder steeple
  Gives all faery lusty warning,        15
Sing and dance, my little people,—
  Dance and sing “Oho” till morning!

END OF VOL. X.
