Page 244 - I'm growing old, but add, Jenny kissed me. '.II a Leigh SONG OF FAIRIES ROBBING AN Hunt ORCHARD We are the Fairies, blithe and antic, Of dimensions not gigantic, Though the moonshine mostly keep us, Oft in orchards frisk and peep us. Stolen sweets are always sweeter, Stolen kisses much completer, Stolen looks are nice in chapels, Stolen, stolen be your apples...

Page 306 - Deftly they frisk it o'er the place, They sit, they drink, and eat; The time with frolic mirth beguile, And poor Sir Topaz hangs the while Till all the rout retreat.
Page 215 - Their cruel swords they quickly drew, And freshly they the fight renew ; They every stroke redoubled : Which 'made Proserpina take heed, And make to them the greater speed, For fear lest they too much should bleed, Which wondrously her troubled. When to th...
