Tate Collection | Oberon, Titania and Puck with Fairies DancingPosted: July 25, 2009
William Blake: Oberon, Titania and Puck with Fairies Dancing circa 1786
Through the house give gathering light,
By the dead and drowsy fire:
Every elf and fairy sprite
Hop as light as bird from brier;
And this ditty, after me,
Sing, and dance it trippingly.
First, rehearse your song by rote
To each word a warbling note:
Hand in hand, with fairy grace,
Will we sing, and bless this place.
