|O then, I see, Queen Mab hath been with you.|
She is the fairies midwife; and she comes
In shape no bigger than an agate-stone
On the forefinger of an alderman,
Drawn with a team of little atomies
Athwart mens noses as they lie asleep.
Shakespeare.Romeo and Juliet, Act I. Scene 4. (Mercutio to Romeo.)
