Fragment: Wine of the Fairies

Published by Mrs. Shelley, "Poetical Works", 1839, 1st edition.

I am drunk with the honey wine
Of the moon-unfolded eglantine,
Which fairies catch in hyacinth bowls.
The bats, the dormice, and the moles
Sleep in the walls or under the sward 
Of the desolate castle yard;
And when 'tis spilt on the summer earth
Or its fumes arise among the dew,
Their jocund dreams are full of mirth,
They gibber their joy in sleep; for few 
Of the fairies bear those bowls so new!
