PUCK AND THE FAIRY, FR. A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Over hill, over dale
Last Line: And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.
Variant Title(s): Fairy's Wander-song;fairyland
Subject(s): Fairies; Elves


Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire,
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moon's sphere;
And I serve the fairy queen,
To dew her orbs upon the green;
The cowslips tall her pensioners be;
In their gold coats, spots you see;
These be rubies, fairy favors --
In those freckles live their savors.
I must go seek some dewdrops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.
