My vig! how kind and clever Nature his,
The "he" who says she haint's a stupid brute,
For vhere's you'd think she could'nt show her phiz,
She comes, and tips us all a green salute.
Who has ever valk'd in Vellclose-square,
T' enjoy the fresh inwiggorating hair,
And has not been delighted with the flowers
Vhich grace the balconies, and make em look
Just like those werry pretty little bowers,
I us'd to read of in the story book:—
And even in the place vhere brokers meet,
And some are noisy as the noisiest brute,
Tho' flowers wont thrive, she still provides a treat,
For there she's stuck a bit of Horrice-root!
