Ariel's Yellow Sands
Act 1 Scene 2
The Tempest
William Shakespeare

[Re-enter ARIEL invisible, playing and singing;
FERDINAND following]

Come unto these yellow sands,
And then take hands;
Curtsied when you have and kiss'd,
The wild waves whist,
Foot it featly here and there,
And, sweet sprites, the burden bear.
Hark, hark!

The watch dogs bark.

Hark, hark! I hear
The strain of strutting chanticleer
Cry, Cock-a-diddle-dow.
