Through the house give glimmering light
By the dead and drowsy fire;
Every elf and fairy sprite
Hop as light as bird from brier;
And this ditty after me
Sing, and dance it trippingly.
First, rehearse your song by rote,
To each word a warbling note:
Hand in hand, with fairy grace,
Will we sing, and bless this place.
Instructions spoken by Oberon and Titania, King and Queen of the fairies, at the end of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act V, sc. 1
