Fancy
by William Shakespeare

Tell me where is Fancy bred,
Or in the heart, or in the head?
How begot, how nourished?
          Reply, reply.

It is engender’d in the eyes;
With gazing fed; and Fancy dies
In the cradle where it lies:
Let us all ring Fancy’s knell;
I’ll begin it,—Ding, dong, bell.
          —Ding, dong, bell.
