The Cap and Bells, or, The Jealousies, Page 22
by John Keats (November-December, 1819).

    The morn is full of holiday; loud bells
    With rival clamours ring from every spire;
    Cunningly-station'd music dies and swells
    In echoing places; when the winds respire,
    Light flags stream out like gauzy tongues of fire;
    A metropolitan murmur, lifeful, warm,
    Comes from the northern suburbs; rich attire
    Freckles with red and gold the moving swarm;
While here and there clear trumpets blow a keen alarm.

    And now the fairy escort was seen clear,
    Like the old pageant of Aurora's train,
    Above a pearl-built minster, hovering near;
    First wily Crafticant, the chamberlain,
    Balanc'd upon his grey-grown pinions twain,
    His slender wand officially reveal'd;
    Then black gnomes scattering sixpences like rain;
    Then pages three and three; and next, slave-held,
The Imaian 'scutcheon bright,—one mouse in argent field.

    Gentlemen pensioners next; and after them,
    A troop of winged Janizaries flew;
    Then slaves, as presents bearing many a gem;
    Then twelve physicians fluttering two and two;
    And next a chaplain in a cassock new;
    Then Lords in waiting; then (what head not reels
    For pleasure?)—the fair Princess in full view,
    Borne upon wings,—and very pleas'd she feels
To have such splendour dance attendance at her heels.
