QUEEN MAB'S DINNER-TABLE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Upon a mushroom there is spread / a cover fine, of spider's web
Last Line: On stall-fed dormouse they do eat.
Alternate Author Name(s): Newcastle, Duchess Of; Lucas, Margaret


Upon a mushroom there is spread
A cover fine, of spider's web;
And for her stool a thistle-down,
And for her cup an acorn's crown,
Wherein strong nectar there is fill'd
That from sweet flowers is distill'd.
Flies of all sorts, both fat and good,
Partridge, snipes, quails and poult, her food,
Pheasants, larks, cocks, or any kind,
Both wild and tame, you there might find.
But for her guard serves grosser meat,
On stall-fed dormouse they do eat.
