Tell me where is fancy bred

Tell me where is fancy bred,
or in the heart or in the head?

How begot, how nourished?
Reply, reply

It is engendered in the eyes,
With gazing fed, and fancy dies

In the cradle where it lies
Let us all ring Fancy's knell

I'll being it, --ding, dong, bell,
All ding, dong, bell.

[William Shakespeare]
