Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,

    This is from S's Midsummer Night's Dream Act 2 Scene I. Puck meets a Fairy and asks 'How now, spirit! whither wander you? ' - This poem is the Fairy's reply. It is a wonderful description of the powers that a Fairy has. It emphasises the magical dream-like quality of the play - the possibility that anything can happen and be done. From it, too, we can see how beautiful must have been the unspoilt natural scene of Elizabethan England. (Report) Reply

    Confusing. Obviously a metaphor for something or other. Ideas, people?

    @Scylla, I agree, but 'through' seems to make the rhythm go off >.> (Report) Reply

  • Scylla v.u.z.Karybdis (6/22/2007 6:34:00 PM)

    I, Scylla, am passing on a note from my good friend, Palimpsestic Muse Priscilla Primrose, Internet High Grammarian, who says: 'It's 'through bush, through briar', not 'thorough''.

    Well said and well done, Muse Priscilla! - Your friend, Scylla (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
