First Line: Sweetheart, sweetheart, delay no more
Last Line: Now what can all the world avail?
Subject(s): Activity; Procrastination


Sweetheart, sweetheart, delay no more,
Nor in this prosy street abide!
The fairy coach is at the door;
The fairy ship is on the tide.
For I have built of golden dreams,
And furnished with delight for thee,
And lit with wondrous starry beams,
A fairy place over sea.
Then, footman, up! Good horses, speed!
Then, lads, aboard and make all sail!
The wind is fair, the cable freed;
Now what can all the world avail?
