I know a bank whereon the wild thyme...
I know a bank whereon the wild thyme blows,
Where [oxlips]1 and the nodding violet grows
[Quite over-canopied with luscious]2 woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses, and with eglantine:
There sleeps [Titania some time]3 of the night,
Lull'd in [these]4 flowers with dances and delight.
And there the snake throws [her]5 enameled skin,
Weed wide enough to wrap a fairy in.
L. Lehmann sets lines 1-2, 5-6
