THOMAS NOEL
English poet
(1799 - 1861)

Gracefully, gracefully glides our bark
  On the bosom of Father Thames,
    And before her bows the wavelets dark
      Break into a thousand gems.
      - A Thames Voyage [Boating]

Rattle his bones over the stones!
  He's only a pauper whom nobody owns.
      - The Pauper's Drive [Poverty]

There's a grim one-horse hearse in a jolly round trot;
  To the churchyear a pauper is going I wot;
    The road it is rough, and the hearse has no springs,
      And hark to the dirge that the sad driver sings--
        Rattle his bones over the stones,
          He's only a pauper whom nobody owns.
      - The Pauper's Drive [Undertakers]
