I am a little world made cunningly
Of elements, and an angelic sprite;
An angel, robed in spotless white,
Bent down and kissed the sleeping Night.
Picture that orchard sprite,
Eve, with her body white,
Supple and smooth to her
Slim finger tips,
Now the hungry lion roars,
And the wolf behowls the moon;
Either I mistake your shape and making quite,
Or else you are that shrewd and knavish sprite
Called Robin Goodfellow.
Now it is the time of night
That the graves, all gaping wide,
For the most part, the best man's spirit makes a fearful sprite to haunt his grave.
You have sat too long for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!
