  • What are these,
  • So wither’d and so wild in their attire;
  • That look not like the inhabitants o’ the earth,
  • And yet are on’t.
  • Shakespeare.

  • Midnight hags,
  • By force of potent spells, of bloody characters,
  • And conjurations, horrible to hear,
  • Call fiends and spectres from the yawning deep,
  • And set the ministers of hell at work.
  • Rowe.
