GOBLIN MARKET

MORNING and evening

Maids heard the goblins cry :

'Come buy our orchard fruits,

Come buy, come buy :

Apples and quinces,

Lemons and oranges,

Plump unpecked chenies,

Melons and raspberries,

Bloom-down-cheeked peaches,

Swart-headed mulberries,

10Wild free-born cranberries, Crab-apples, dewberries,

Pine-apples, blackberries,

Apricots, strawberries ;—

All ripe together

In summer weather,—

Morns that pass by,

Fair eves that fly ;

Come buy, come buy :

Our grapes fresh from the vine,

20Pomegranates full and fine, . . .
