FANCY, FR. THE MERCHANT OF VENICE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Tell me where is fancy bred
Last Line: Ding, dong, bell.
Subject(s): Imagination; Fancy


Tell me where is Fancy bred,
Or in the heart or in the head?
How begot, how nourished?
Reply, reply.
It is engendered in the eyes,
With gazing fed; and Fancy dies
In the cradle where it lies.
Let us all ring Fancy's knell:
I'll begin it, -- Ding, dong, bell.
Ding, dong, bell.
