ABAB


Now consider a later part of the fairy s speech has anything changed

Now consider a later part of the Fairy’s speech. Has anything changed?

And I serve the Fairy Queen,

To dew her orbs upon the green.

The cowslips tall her pensioners be;

In their gold spots you see –

Those be rubies, fairy favours;

In those freckles live with savours.

I must go seek some dewdrops here,

And hang a pearl in every cowslips ear.

Farewell though lob of spirits; I’ll be gone.

Our Queen and all her spirits come here anon.

Here is the complete Fairy speech.What do you notice about lines 5 and 6?

Over hill, over dale,

Through bush, through briar,

Over park, over pale,

Through flood, through fire -

I do wonder everywhere

Swifter than the moon’s sphere,

And I serve the Fairy Queen,

To dew her orbs upon the green.

The cowslips tall her pensioners be;

In their gold spots you see –

Those be rubies, fairy favours;

In those freckles live with savours.

I must go seek some dewdrops here,

And hang a pearl in every cowslips ear.

Farewell though lob of spirits; I’ll be gone.

Our Queen and all her spirits come here anon.
