Spring's Poetry: It comes up from the Earth.

ACT II - SCENE I. A wood near Athens.

Enter, from opposite sides, a Fairy, and PUCK


How now, spirit! whither wander you?


Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire,
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moon'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 dewdrops here
And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.
Farewell, thou lob of spirits; I'll be gone:
Our queen and all our elves come here anon.

from A Midsummer Night's Dream

I love the posts here. It reminds me of those sleepless college nights where poring over political heroes and Shakespeare required gallons of caffeine. Keep the posts coming!

What's your real name, Sweetie? You just don't write that Scottish. HO :)
