Fairy Land I Poem by William Shakespeare

Fairy Land I

Rating: 3.7

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.

Powerfully brought forth; a beautiful rendition of words.

Oops, here's the note I meant to add: The word 'thorough' is, in today's parlance, 'through'. And lady moon not only had an 'e' on the end, but it was expected that the schwa-like 'e' would be pronounced. In modern productions or recitations, the word is rendered 'moon's', as you might expect.

I always love reading Shakespeare and find inspiration there! In case anyone is interested, I found this note:
