Not illustrated. 1881 Excerpt: ... state, Robed in flames and amber light. The clouds in thousand liveries dight; While the ploughman, near at hand; Whistles o'er the furrowed land, And the milkmaid singeth blithe, And the mower whets his scythe, And every shepherd tells his tale Under the hawthorn in the dale.

Sometimes with secure delight The upland hamlets will invite, When the merry bells ring round, And the jocund rebecks sound To many a youth and many a maid, Dancing in the chequered shade; And young and old come forth to play On a sunshine holiday, Till the live-long day-light fail: Then to the spicy nut brown ale, With stories told of many a feat, How fairy Mab the junkets eat; She was pinched and pulled, she said; And he, by friar's lantern led; Tells how the drudging Goblin sweat To earn his cream-bowl duly set When in one night ere glimpse of morn, His shadowy flail hath threshed the corn That ten day-laborers could not end; Then lays him down the lubber fiend, And, stretched out all the chimney's length Basks at the fire his hairy strength...
