Enter a FAIRY at one side and ROBIN (ROBIN GOODFELLOW) at another
A RAIYF dna RNOBI OODOGLWFLE (a uckp or ucvsmhisoei srptii) teme nogstae.

ROBIN

How now, spirit? Whither wander you?

BROIN

llHeo, pirsti! hWere aer you gingo?

FAIRY

Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire.
I do wander everywhere
Swifter than the moons 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 favors.
In those freckles live their savors.
I must go seek some dewdrops here
And hang a pearl in every cowslips ear.
Farewell, thou lob of spirits. Ill be gone.
Our queen and all our elves come here anon.

ROBIN

The king doth keep his revels here tonight.
5 Take heed the queen come not within his sight.
For Oberon is passing fell and wrath
Because that she, as her attendant hath
A lovely boy stolen from an Indian king.
She never had so sweet a changeling.
10 And jealous Oberon would have the child
Knight of his train, to trace the forests wild.
But she perforce withholds the lovd boy,
Crowns him with flowers, and makes him all her joy.

And now they never meet in grove or green,
15 By fountain clear or spangled starlight sheen.
But they do square, that all their elves for fear
Creep into acorn cups and hide them there.

FAIRY

Either I mistake your shape and making quite,
Or else you are that shrewd and knavish sprite
20 Called Robin Goodfellow. Are not you he
That frights the maidens of the villagery,
Skim milk, and sometimes labor in the quern
And bootless make the breathless housewife churn,
And sometime make the drink to bear no barm,
25 Mislead night-wanderers, laughing at their harm?
Those that Hobgoblin call you, and sweet Puck,
You do their work, and they shall have good luck.
Are not you he?

ROBIN

Thou speakst aright.
I am that merry wanderer of the night.
30 I jest to Oberon and make him smile
When I a fat and bean-fed horse beguile,
Neighing in likeness of a filly foal.
And sometime lurk I in a gossips bowl
In very likeness of a roasted crab,
35 And when she drinks, against her lips I bob
And on her withered dewlap pour the ale.
The wisest aunt telling the saddest tale
Sometime for three-foot stool mistaketh me.
Then slip I from her bum, down topples she,
40 And Tailor! cries, and falls into a cough,
And then the whole quire hold their hips and laugh,
And waxen in their mirth, and neeze, and swear
A merrier hour was never wasted there.
But, room, fairy! Here comes Oberon.

I have forsworn his bed and company.

BOONRE

TITANIA

50 Then I must be thy lady. But I know
When thou hast stolen away from Fairyland,
And in the shape of Corin sat all day,
Playing on pipes of corn and versing love
To amorous Phillida. Why art thou here,
55 Come from the farthest step of India?
But that, forsooth, the bouncing Amazon,
Your buskined mistress and your warrior love,
To Theseus must be wedded, and you come
To give their bed joy and prosperity.

TITANIA

OBERON

60 How canst thou thus for shame, Titania,
Knowing I know thy love to Theseus? Glance at my credit with Hippolyta,
Didst thou not lead him through the glimmering night
From Perigouna, whom he ravishd?
And make him with fair gles break his faith,
65 With Ariadne and Antiopa?

BRNEOO

TITANIA

These are the forgeries of jealousy.
And never, since the middle summers spring,
Met we on hill, in dale, forest, or mead,
By pavd fountain, or by rushy brook,
70 Or in the beachd margent of the sea,
To dance our ringlets to the whistling wind,
But with thy brawls thou hast disturbed our sport.
Therefore the winds, piping to us in vain,
As in revenge, have sucked up from the sea
75 Contagious fogs, which falling in the land
Have every pelting river made so proud
That they have overborne their continents.
The ox hath therefore stretched his yoke in vain,
The ploughman lost his sweat, and the green corn
80 Hath rotted ere his youth attained a beard.
The fold stands empty in the drownd field,
And crows are fatted with the murrain flock.
The nine-mens-morris is filled up with mud,
And the quaint mazes in the wanton green
85 For lack of tread are undistinguishable.
The human mortals want their winter here.
No night is now with hymn or carol blessed.
Therefore the moon, the governess of floods,
Pale in her anger, washes all the air,
90 That rheumatic diseases do abound.
And thorough this distemperature we see
The seasons alter: hoary-headed frosts
Fall in the fresh lap of the crimson rose,
And on old Hiems thin and icy crown
95 An odorous chaplet of sweet summer buds
Is, as in mockery, set. The spring, the summer,
The childing autumn, angry winter change
Their wonted liveries, and the mazd world,
By their increase, now knows not which is which.
100 And this same progeny of evils comes
From our debate, from our dissension.
We are their parents and original.

TITANIA

Set your heart at rest.
The Fairyland buys not the child of me.
His mother was a votaress of my order,
And in the spicd Indian air by night
110 Full often hath she gossiped by my side,
And sat with me on Neptunes yellow sands,
Marking th embarkd traders on the flood,
When we have laughed to see the sails conceive
And grow big-bellied with the wanton wind;
115 Which she, with pretty and with swimming gait
Followingher womb then rich with my young squire
Would imitate, and sail upon the land
To fetch me trifles and return again
As from a voyage, rich with merchandise.
120 But she, being mortal, of that boy did die.
And for her sake do I rear up her boy,
And for her sake I will not part with him.

Well, go thy way. Thou shalt not from this grove
Till I torment thee for this injury.(to ROBIN GOODFELLOW)
My gentle Puck, come hither. Thou rememberest
Since once I sat upon a promontory
135 And heard a mermaid on a dolphins back
Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath
That the rude sea grew civil at her song
And certain stars shot madly from their spheres
To hear the seamaids music?

ORINB

OBERON

140 That very time I saw (but thou couldst not)
Flying between the cold moon and the Earth,
Cupid all armed. A certain aim he took
At a fair vestal thrond by the west,
And loosed his love shaft smartly from his bow
145 As it should pierce a hundred thousand hearts.
But I might see young Cupids fiery shaft
Quenched in the chaste beams of the watery moon,
And the imperial votaress passd on,
In maiden meditation, fancy-free.
150 Yet marked I where the bolt of Cupid fell.
It fell upon a little western flower,
Before milk-white, now purple with loves wound.
And maidens call it love-in-idleness.
Fetch me that flower. The herb I showed thee once.
155 The juice of it on sleeping eyelids laid
Will make or man or woman madly dote
Upon the next live creature that it sees.
Fetch me this herb, and be thou here again
Ere the leviathan can swim a league.

On meddling monkey or on busy ape
She shall pursue it with the soul of love.

Hast thou the flower there? Welcome, wanderer.

ROBIN

Ay, there it is.

OIRNB

Yes, here it is.

OBERON

I pray thee, give it me.
(takes flower from ROBIN)
235 I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite overcanopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk roses and with eglantine.

There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
240 Lulled in these flowers with dances and delight.
And there the snake throws her enameled skin,
Weed wide enough to wrap a fairy in.
And with the juice of this Ill streak her eyes
And make her full of hateful fantasies.
245(gives ROBIN some of the flower)
Take thou some of it and seek through this grove:
A sweet Athenian lady is in love
With a disdainful youth. Anoint his eyes.
But do it when the next thing he espies
250 May be the lady. Thou shalt know the man
By the Athenian garments he hath on.
Effect it with some care, that he may prove
More fond on her than she upon her love.
And look thou meet me ere the first cock crow.
