HOPE that you may understand!
What can books of men that wive
In a dragon-guarded land,

Sea-nymphs in their pearly wagons
Do, but awake a hope to live
That had gone
With the dragons?

Until enough of paudeen’s pence
By Biddy’s halfpennies have lain
To be 'some sort of evidence’,
Before you’ll put your guineas dow
