    In those freckles live their savours;
    I must go seek some dewdrops here,
    And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear

    Shakespeare, the classic English poet whose romance
    with literature and poetry, shall live for generations after generations.
    Midsummer night's dream - a comedy - an outstanding creation!
    I must go seek some dewdrops here,
    And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.

    Once again, what is presented to us as a poem is truly a segment from a play. In this case, A Midsummer Night's Dream. In Act II, scene i, the character of Robin Goodfellow encounters a fairy whom he asks:
    How now, spirit? Whither wander you?
    And the fairy's reply* is what is commonly known as The Fairy Song although there is no indication whatsoever from the Bard that this speech is sung. It is in no way a monologue, it is an extensive piece of dialogue
    As the fairy leaves he/she parts from Robin with these words:
    Farewell, thou lob of spirits. I’ll be gone.
    Our queen and all our elves come here anon.

    * note that the first sentence has no verb; it is a direct reply to Robin's question
