Page: Nan Page (my daughter) and my little sonne, And three or foure more of their growth, wee'l dresse Like Urchins, Ouphes, and Fairies, greene and white, With rounds of waxen Tapers on their heads, And rattles in their hands; upon a sodaine, As Falstaffe, she, and I, are newly met, Let them from forth a saw-pit rush at once With some diffused song: Upon their sight We two, in great amazednesse will flye: Then let them all encircle him about, And Fairy-like to pinch the uncleane Knight; And aske him why that houre of Fairy Revell, In their so sacred pathes, he dares to tread In shape prophane.
