Song from The Tempest

William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
COME 1 unto these yellow sands,
  And then take hands:
Court’sied when you have, and kiss’d
  The wild waves whist,
Foot it featly here and there;        5
And, sweet sprites, the burden bear.
  Hark, hark!
    Bowgh, wowgh.
  The watch-dogs bark:
    Bowgh, wowgh.        10
  Hark, hark! I hear
The strain of strutting chanticleer
    Cry, Cock-a-diddle-do.
Note 1. Shakespeare. Song. ‘The Tempest’, i. 2. [back]
