Fairy Land I

Poem By William Shakespeare

OVER hill, over dale,
   Thorough bush, thorough brier,
   Over park, over pale,
   Thorough flood, thorough fire,
   I do wander everywhere,
   Swifter than the moone'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;
   Those be rubies, fairy favours,
   In those freckles live their savours:
   I must go seek some dew-drops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.

An excellent fairy land to forget the realities of life and be with serene nature and it's comforts.
A swift tour of the fairy land undertaken by the imagery of the great bard. A marvelous life song.
