In Halliwell's Popular Rhymes and Nursery Tales this rhyme occurs:
'Buckee, Buckee, biddy Bene,

Is the way now fair and clean?

Is the goose ygone to nest,

And the fox ygone to rest?

Shall I come away?'

These curious lines are said by Devonshire children when they go through any passages in the dark, and are said to be addressed to Puck or Robin Goodfellow. Biddy bene= Anglo-Saxon biddan, to ask or pray; bén, a supplication or entreaty. Buckee is perhaps a corruption of Puck.  [A Modern Herbal; Mrs. M. Grieve]
