The Cap and Bells, or, The Jealousies, Page 14
by John Keats (November-December, 1819).

    Then turning round, he saw those trembling two:
    "Eban," said he, "as slaves should taste the fruits
    Of diligence, I shall remember you
    To-morrow, or next day, as time suits,
    In a finger conversation with my mutes,—
    Begone!—for you, Chaldean! here remain!
    Fear not, quake not, and as good wine recruits
    A conjurer's spirits, what cup will you drain?
Sherry in silver, hock in gold, or glass'd champagne?"

    "Commander of the faithful!" answer'd Hum,
    "In preference to these, I'll merely taste
    A thimble-full of old Jamaica rum."
    "A simple boon!" said Elfinan; "thou may'st
    Have Nantz, with which my morning-coffee's lac'd."
    "I'll have a glass of Nantz, then,"—said the Seer,—
    "Made racy—(sure my boldness is misplac'd!)—
    With the third part—(yet that is drinking dear!)—
Of the least drop of crème de citron, crystal clear."

    "I pledge you, Hum! and pledge my dearest love,
    My Bertha!" "Bertha! Bertha!" cry'd the sage,
    "I know a many Berthas!" "Mine's above
    All Berthas!" sighed the Emperor. "I engage,"
    Said Hum, "in duty, and in vassalage,
    To mention all the Berthas in the earth;—
    There's Bertha Watson,—and Miss Bertha Page,—
    This fam'd for languid eyes, and that for mirth,—
There's Bertha Blount of York,—and Bertha Knox of Perth."
