  Come unto these yellow sands,
    And then take hands:
  Curtsied when you have, and kiss'd
    The wild waves whist,
  Foot it featly here and there;
  And, sweet sprites, the burthen bear.
    Hark, hark!
    The watch-dogs bark.
   Hark, hark! I hear
   The strain of strutting chanticleer
   Cry, Cock-a-did-dle-dow.
