Sivu 45 - His muse was of universal access; and he was not only the poet of his monastery, but of the world in general*.
Sivu 93 - My gayest gelding I thee gave, To ride wherever liked thee ; No lady ever was so brave, And yet thou wouldst not love me.
Sivu 254 - GIVE Chloe a bushel of horse-hair and wool, Of paste and pomatum a pound, Ten yards of gny ribbon to deck her sweet skull, And gauze to encompass it round.
Sivu 90 - I have been ready at your hand, To grant whatever you would crave: I have both waged life and land, Your love and goodwill for to have.
Sivu 229 - Twou'd be quite unpolite to have one wrought at home; With cobweb silk stocking his legs to befriend, Two pair underneath, his lank calves to amend ; With breeches in winter would cause one to freeze, To add to his height, must not cover his knees ; A pair of smart pumps made up of grain'd leather ; So thin he can't venture to tread on a feather ; His buckles like diamonds must glitter and shine, Should they cost fifty pounds they wou'd not be too fine; A repeater by Graham, which the hours reveals,...
Sivu 245 - Ye belles and beaux of London town, Come listen to my ditty ; The Muse in prancing up and down Has found out something pretty, With little hat, and hair dress'd high, And whip to ride a pony ; If you but take a right survey, Denotes a Macaroni.

Sivu 136 - The French affects the Orleans' grape, The Spaniard tastes his sherry, The English none of these can 'scape, But he with all makes merry. The Italian in her high chopine,* Scotch lass, and lovely Frow too, The Spanish Donna, French Madam, He will not fear to go to ; Nothing so full of hazard dread, Nought lives above the centre, No fashion, health, no wine, nor wench, On which he dare not venture.
