Sunday Poetry Post

A not so long-legg'd spinner.

Midsummer Night's Dream
Wm. Shakespeare
-- from Act II Scene II

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

Chorus:
   Philomel, with melody
   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.

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

Chorus:
   Philomel, with melody
   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.
