  TO MINERVA  

My temples throb, my pulses boil,
    I'm sick of Song and Ode and Ballad--
So Thyrsis, take the midnight oil,
    And pour it on a lobster salad.

My brain is dull, my sight is foul,
    I cannot write a verse, or read--
Then Pallas, take away thine Owl,
    And let us have a Lark instead.

                                     Thomas Hood.
