A Fairy Song - Poem by William Shakespeare

Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire!
I do wander 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 coats spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favours;
In those freckles live their savours;
I must go seek some dewdrops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.

    This is a fairy speaking with Puck in ''A Midsummer Night's Dream''.

    Puck asks her where she is going and she replies, telling him it is her job, as servant to Titania, to put dewdrops on everything. She's making everything pretty, evidently that is what faeries do.

    She is saying that she wanders everywhere, through parks, briers, floods, fires, hills and dales very quickly, and she serves Titania (the fairy queen) by dropping dew on the grass and bushes. Cowslips are a type of flower and a pensioner is a guardian, mercenary, 'gentleman at arms'. She is saying that you can tell by looking at the cowslips (flowers) who their guardian is by looking at the gold coats and spots because they are the gifts of faeries (fairy favors): it is those spots (freckles) that make them smell so good and make them unique (savours) .

    She then recognizes Puck as one of Oberon's servants and they talk about keeping the two of them separated because they are fighting. (Report) Reply
