The nobles seem to have forgotten all about the world of the fairies by the play's end.

Which of the final lines of the play reassert the fairies' importance to human life?


“And we fairies, that do run / By the triple Hecate's team, /From the presence of the sun, / Follow darkness like a dream.” (5.1.373)


“First rehearse your song by rote, / To each word a warbling note: / Hand in hand, with fairy grace, / Will we sing, and bless this place.” (5.1.387)


“Not a mouse / Shall disturb this house: / I am sent, with broom, before, / To sweep the dust behind the door.” (5.1.377)


“If we shadows have offended, / Think but this, and all is mended: / That you have but slumb'red here, / While these visions did appear.” (5.1.413)


“Every elf and fairy sprite / Hop as light as bird from brier; / And this ditty, after me, / Sing, and dance it trippingly.” (5.1.383)
