The fancier of a vagrant mind;
Imprisoned in a tno'J of clay
From which, at times, it loves to stray
To revel in some fairy dale
'Mid eceies ot some fantastic tale.
Orelae.on such a night as this,
(Twould be indeed a source of bliss)
Around tome festive board to sit.
That sparkles both with wine and wit.

To eat roast pork with Charley Lamb!

Were also there to share the meal
'Twouli be indeed a timo of joy.
