by Ben Jonson (1572 - 1637)

The fairy beam upon you
Language: English 
The fairy beam upon you
The stars to glister on you
A moon of light
In the noon of night till the firedrake hath o’ergone you
The wheel of fortune guide you
The Boy with the Bow runneth aye in the way
Till the bird of day and the luckier lot betide you.
