This is a small piece from Hobgoblin & Sweet Puck Fairy Names & Natures by Gillian Edwards
In old wives’ dais, that in old time did live
(To those odd tales much credit men did give)
Great store of goblins, fairies, bugs, night-mares,
Yea, far more sprites did haunt in divers places
Than there be women now weare devils faces.
From More Knaves Yet, 1600
