J tell of festivals, and (kin, ud plays,

Of merriment, mod mirth, and bonfire blue;

I toll of Christmas muminings, new year's day,

Of twelfth-night king and queen, and children's play;

I toll of Valentines, and trae*love*s-kootst

Of omcoJ, cunning-men, and drawing lots——

I tell of brooks, of blossoms, birds and bowers,
Of April, May, of June, and Jaly-fluwers;
I tell of May-poles, hock-carts, wassails, wakes.
Of bridegrooms, brides, and of their bridal cakes;
I tell of groves, of twilights, and I sing
The court of Mab, and of the fairy-king.
