 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.
