Ben Jonson


The Gypsies Metamorphosed

        The faery beam upon you,
        The stars to glister on you ;
            A moon of light,
            In the noon of night,
Till the fire-drake hath o'ergone you !
The wheel of fortune guide you,
The boy with the bow beside you ;
            Run aye in the way,
            Till the bird of day,
        And the luckier lot betide you !

The Songs and Poems of Ben Jonson.
London: Philip Allan & Co., 1924. 81.
