  RURAL RAPTURES  

'Tis sweet at dewy eve to rove
    When softly sighs the western breeze,
And wandering 'mid the starlit grove
    To take a pinch of snuff and sneeze.

'Tis sweet to see in daisied field
    The flocks and herds their pleasure take;
But sweeter are the joys they yield
    In tender chop and juicy steak.

'Tis sweet to hear the murmurous sound
    That from the vocal woods doth rise,
To mark the pigeons wheeling round,
    And think how nice they'd be in pies.

When nightingales pour from their throats
    Their gushing melody, 'tis sweet;
Yet sweeter 'tis to catch the notes
    That issue from Threadneedle Street.

                                                        Unknown.
