Poem: Candlemas Vigil by Robert Herrick

Down with the rosemary, and so
Down with the bays and misletoe; 
Down with the holly, ivy, all 
Wherewith ye dress'd the Christmas hall; 
That so the superstitious find 
No one least branch there left behind; 
For look, how many leaves there be 
Neglected there, maids, trust to me, 
So many goblins you shall see.
