by Ben Jonson (1572 - 1637)

The faiery beame upon you
Language: English 
The faiery beame upon you,
The starres to glister on you,
    A Moone of light,
    In the Noone of night,
Till the Fire-Drake hath o're-gone you.

The Wheele of Fortune guide you,
The Boy with the Bow beside you,
    Runne aye in the way
    Till the Bird of day,
And the luckyer lot betide you.
