"Good, well-dress'd turtle beats them hollow,--
  It almost makes me wish, I vow,
    To have two stomachs, like a cow!"
      And lo! as with the cud, an inward thrill
        Upheaved his waistcoat and disturb'd his frill,
          His mouth was oozing, and he work'd his jaw--
            "I almost that that I could eat one raw."
      - The Turtles [Eating]

Sweet are the little brooks that run
  O'er pebbles glancing in the sun,
    Singing in soothing tones.
      - Town and Country (st. 9) [Brooks]

What joy have I in June's return?
  My feet are parched--my eyeballs burn,
    I scent no flowery gust;
      But faint the flagging zephyr springs,
        With dry Macadam on its wings,
          And turns me "dust to dust."
      - Town and Country--Old Imitated from Horace
        [June]

How bravely Autumn paints upon the sky
  The gorgeous fame of Summer which is fled!
      - Written in a Volume of Shakespeare [Sky]
