One from Macfarren's collection of settings of "Shakspere songs".
Lyrics: William Shakespeare

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