I tell of festivals, and fairs, and plays,
Of merriment, and mirth, and bonfire blaze;
I fell of Christmas-mummings, new year's day.
Of twelfth-night king and queen, and children's play;
I tell of Valentines, and true-love's-knots,
of omens, cunning men, and drawing lots-
I tell of brooks, of blossoms, birds and bowers,
I tell of May-poles, hock-carts. wassails, wakes,
IN TWO VOLUMES.
WITH THREE HUNDRED AND TWENTY ENGRAVINGS.
