THE FAIRIES, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: If ye will with mab find grace
Last Line: Mab will pinch her by the toe.
Subject(s): Fairies; Elves


If ye will with Mab find grace,
Set each Platter in his place:
Rake the Fier up, and get
Water in, ere Sun be set.
Wash your Pailes, and clense your Dairies;
Sluts are loathsome to the Fairies:
Sweep your house: Who doth not so,
Mab will pinch her by the toe.
