A Midsummer-Night’s Dream
Act II. Scene II.
Another Part of the Wood


Enter TITANIA, with her Train.

Titania. Come, now a roundel and a fairy song;
Then, for the third of a minute, hence; 4
Some to kill cankers in the musk-rose buds,
Some war with rere-mice for their leathern wings,
To make my small elves coats, and some keep back
The clamorous owl, that nightly hoots, and wonders 8
At our quaint spirits. Sing me now asleep;
Then to your offices, and let me rest.

The Fairies sing.

You spotted snakes with double tongue,
Thorny hedge-hogs, be not seen;
Newts, and blind-worms, do no wrong;
Come not near our fairy queen.

Sing in our sweet lullaby;
Lulla, lulla, lullaby; lulla, lulla, lullaby:
Never harm,
Nor spell, nor charm,
Come our lovely lady nigh;
So, good night, with lullaby.

Weaving spiders come not here;
Hence, you long-legg’d spinners, hence!
Beetles black, approach not near;
Worm nor snail, do no offence.
