Tell me where is fancy bred.

Tell me where is fancy bred, Or in the heart, or in the head ? How begot, how nourished ?

Reply, reply.

It is engender'd in the eyes;
With gazing fed ; and fancy dies
In the cradle where it lies.
Let us all ring fancy's knell;
I'll begin it,-Ding-dong, bell.

Chorus.—Ding-dong, bell.

[graphic][merged small]

HARK ! hark! the lark at heaven's gate sings,

And Phoebus ’gins arise,
His steeds to water at those springs

On chalic'd flowers that lies;

And winking Mary-buds begin

To ope their golden eyes ; With everything that pretty is, My lady sweet, arise ;

Arise, arise.
