The Cap and Bells, or, The Jealousies, Page 21
by John Keats (November-December, 1819).

    "Open the window, Hum; I'm ready now!"
    Zooks!" exclaim'd Hum, as up the sash he drew,
    "Behold, your Majesty, upon the brow
    Of yonder hill, what crowds of people!" "Whew!
    The monster's always after something new,"
    Return'd his Highness, "they are piping hot
    To see my pigsney Bellanaine. Hum! do
    Tighten my belt a little,—so, so,—not
Too tight,—the book!—my wand!—so, nothing is forgot."

    "Wounds! how they shout!" said Hum, "and there,—see, see!
    Th' ambassador's return'd from Pigmio!
    The morning's very fine,—uncommonly!
    See, past the skirts of yon white cloud they go,
    Tinging it with soft crimsons! Now below
    The sable-pointed heads of firs and pines
    They dip, move on, and with them moves a glow
    Along the forest side! Now amber lines
Reach the hill top, and now throughout the valley shines."

    "Why, Hum, you're getting quite poetical!
    Those nows you managed in a special style."
    "If ever you have leisure, Sire, you shall
    See scraps of mine will make it worth your while,
    Tit-bits for Phœbus!—yes, you well may smile.
    Hark! hark! the bells!" "A little further yet,
    Good Hum, and let me view this mighty coil."
    Then the great Emperor full graceful set
His elbow for a prop, and snuff'd his mignonnette.
