The Cap and Bells, or, The Jealousies, Page 4
by John Keats (November-December, 1819).

    Sorely she griev'd, and wetted three or four
    White Provence rose-leaves with her faery tears,
    But not for this cause;—alas! she had more
    Bad reasons for her sorrow, as appears
    In the fam'd memoirs of a thousand years,
    Written by Crafticant, and published
    By Parpaglion and Co., (those sly compeers
    Who rak'd up ev'ry fact against the dead,)
In Scarab Street, Panthea, at the Jubal's Head.

    Where, after a long hypercritic howl
    Against the vicious manners of the age,
    He goes on to expose, with heart and soul,
    What vice in this or that year was the rage,
    Backbiting all the world in every page;
    With special strictures on the horrid crime,
    (Section'd and subsection'd with learning sage,)
    Of faeries stooping on their wings sublime
To kiss a mortal's lips, when such were in their prime.

    Turn to the copious index, you will find
    Somewhere in the column, headed letter B,
    The name of Bellanaine, if you're not blind;
    Then pray refer to the text, and you will see
    An article made up of calumny
    Against this highland princess, rating her
    For giving way, so over fashionably,
    To this new-fangled vice, which seems a burr
Stuck in his moral throat, no coughing e'er could stir.
