A Midsummer Night's Dream - Over Hill, Over Dale

I have now read the poem "Over Hill, Over Dale" from William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream." I have found Shakespeare's ability to rhyme so accurately remarkable and have enlarged my vocabulary greatly while reading this piece. I have also developed a fascination for Old English (which is used within the poem) and intend to study how it has evolved to the English that the larger part of society uses today. This poem displays the artistic talent of the poet and is so innocent that it is suitable for all ages, although one would want to be capable of fully comprehending the poem - an ability that may be obtained at a certain age.
