Shakespeare, 31st August

I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:
Where sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
Lull'd in these flowers with dances and delight.
                  Midsummer Night's Dream, Act ii., Sc. I.

Indeed, a' must shoot nearer, or he'll ne'er hit the clout.
                       Love's Labour Lost, Act iv., Sc. I.
