Queen Mab from Romeo and Juliet
" O, then I see Queen Mab hath been with you. She is the fairies' midwife, (lines 53-54)
"and she comes in shape no bigger than an agate stone on the forefinger of an alderman, drawn with a team of little atomies" (lines 54-57)
"And in this state she gallops night by night through lovers' brains, and then they dream of love;" (lines 70-71)
"Sometime she gallops o'er a courtier's nose, and then dreams he of smelling out a suit," (lines 77-78)
"Sometime she driveth o'er a soldier's neck, and then dreams he of cutting foreign throats, of breaches, ambuscadoes, Spanish blades," (lines 82-84)
"And sometime comes she with a tithe-pig's tail tickling a parson's nose as 'a lies asleep, then dreams he of another benefice." (lines 79-81)
