Not illustrated. 1892 edition. Excerpt: ...on a bank. What's here? a dead bat in the fairy ring--Yes, I remember, Scarlet hacking down A hollow ash, a bat flew out at him In the clear noon, and hook'd him by the hair, And he was scared and slew it. My men say The fairies haunt this glade;--if one could catch A glimpse of them and of their fairy Queen--Have our loud pastimes driven them all away? I never saw them: yet I could believe There came some evil fairy at my birth And cursed me, as the last heir of my race: ' This boy will never wed the maid he loves, Nor leave a child behind him' (yawns). Weary--weary As tho' a spell were on me (he dreams). _The whole stage lights up, and fairies are seen swinging on boughs and nestling in hollow trunks. Titania on a hill. Fairies on either side of her. The moon above the hill. First Fairy. Evil fairy! do you hear? So he said who lieth here. Second Fairy. We be fairies of the wood, We be neither bad nor good. First Fairy. Back and side and hip and rib, Nip, nip him for his fib. Titania. Nip him not, but let him snore. We must flit for evermore. First Fairy. Tit, my queen, must it be so? Wherefore, wherefore should we go? Titania. / Titania bid you flit, And you dare to call me Tit. First Fairy. Tit, for love and brevity, Not for love of levity. TlTANIA. Pertest of our flickering mob, Wouldst thou call my Oberon Ob? First Fairy. Nay, an please your Elfin Grace, Never Ob before his face. TlTANIA. Fairy realm is breaking down When the fairy slights the crown. First Fairy. No, by wisp and glowworm, no. Only wherefore should we go? TlTANIA. We must fly from Robin Hood And this new queen of the wood. First Fairy. True, she is a goodly thing. Jealousy, jealousy of the king. 78 TlTANIA. Nay, for Oberon fled away Twenty thousand leagues to-day. Chorus....
