Excerpt from The Cat-Fight: A Mock Heroic Poem, Supported With Copious Extracts From Ancient and Modern Classic Authors
Wanton drole, whose harmless play Beguiles the rustic's closing day. When drawn the evening fire about, Sit aged Crone, and thoughtless Lout, And child upon... his three-foot stool, Waiting till his supper cool And maid whose cheek outblooms the rose. As bright the blazing faggot glows, Who, bending to the friendly light, Plies her task with busy sleight; Come, show thy tricks and sportive graces, Thus circled round with merry faces.
