Pagina 152 - So little care of sleep or sloth These pretty ladies had; When Tom came home from labour Or Ciss to milking rose, Then merrily went their tabor And nimbly went their toes.

Pagina 79 - I will pursue thee dead, And wretched woman as I am, it shall of me be sed That like as of thy death I was the onely cause and blame, So am I thy companion eke and partner in the same.
Pagina 149 - And with sharper nails remembers When they rake not up their embers ; But, if so they chance to feast her, In a shoe she drops a tester.
Pagina 161 - And in their courses make that round In meadows and in marshes found, Of them so called the Fairy Ground, Of which they have the keeping.
