    Passage: The Argument Of His Book I sing of brooks, of blossoms, birds, and bowers, Of April, May, of June, and July-flowers; I sing of May-poles, hock-carts,* wassails,** wakes, *harvest-carrying carts **toasts (Line) Of bride-grooms, brides, and of their bridal-cakes. 5 I write of Youth, of Love;--and have access By these, to sing of cleanly wantonness; I sing of dews, of rains, and, piece by piece, Of balm, of oil, of spice, and ambergris.* *whale-product used to make perfumes; I sing of times trans-shifting; and I write a rarity 10 How roses first came red, and lilies white. I write of groves, of twilights, and I sing The court of Mab,* and of the Fairy King. *queen of the fairies I write of Hell; I sing, and ever shall Of Heaven,--and hope to have it after all.
