Example text

Nor chariot, nor barouche, Nor bandit cavalcade Tore from the trembling father's arms His all-accomplished maid. For her how happy had it been! And Heaven had spared to me To see one sad, ungathered rose On my ancestral tree. ] My brother Jack was nine in May, And I was eight on New-year's day; So in Kate Wilson's shop Papa (he's my papa and Jack's) Bought me, last week, a doll of wax, And brother Jack a top. Jack's in the pouts, and this it is — H e thinks mine came to more than his; So to my drawer he goes, Takes out the doll, and, O, my stars!

Out spoke the ancient fisherman: " Oh, what was that, my daughter ? " Out spoke the ancient fisherman: " Now, bring me my harpoon!

For the wheels were just as strong as the thills, And the floor was just as strong as the sills, And the panels were just as strong as the floor, And the whiffle-tree neither less nor more, And the back-crossbar as strong as the fore, And spring and axle and hub encore.
