William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
Come to the Pedlar
By William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 
From “The Winter’s Tale,” Act IV. Scene 3

WILL you buy any tape,
  Or lace for your cape,
My dainty duck, my dear-a?
  Any silk, any thread,
  Any toys for your head,        5
Of the new’st and finest, finest wear-a?
  Come to the pedlar;
  Money’s a meddler,
That doth utter all men’s ware-a.
