My turn, I guess.


Puck:

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumber'd here,
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend:
If you pardon, we will mend.
And, as I'm an honest Puck
If we have unearned luck
Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,
We will make amends ere long:
Else the Puck a Liar call.
So, good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends.


Interestingly, it turns out I've mis-remembered it. I tend to remember it like this:
Puck:
If these visions have offended,
Then think but this, and all is mended:
That you have but slumbered here
While these visions did appear
Think this weak and idle theme
No more yielding than a dream
Gentles, do not reprehend;
If you pardon, we will mend
Or else the Puck a Liar call.
And so good night unto you all
Give us your hands, if we be friends
And Robin soon shall make amends.


which I knew was wrong, because the sense is wrong: it's inverted. Still, I didn't realise I'm missed a chunk out, too. Oops.
