1 HARK, the raven flaps his wings,
2 The owlet leaves her oaken bower,
3 Now we dance in airy ring,
4 On mossy banks at ev'ning hour:
5 And lightly beat the dewy ground
6 With our tiny feet around.
[Page 112]
7 Vapours dark, or sprites impure,
8 Our fairy revels ne'er invade,
9 In the hawthorn brake secure
10 The glow-worm lights us thro' the shade.
11 We lightly beat the dewy ground
12 With our tiny feet around.
