William Shakespeare. 1564–1616
129. Fairy Land
COME 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 burthen bear. 
      Hark, hark! 
        Bow, wow, 
      The watch-dogs bark: 
        Bow, wow.  10
      Hark, hark! I hear 
  The strain of strutting chanticleer 
  Cry, Cock-a-diddle-dow!
