The Cap and Bells, or, The Jealousies, Page 25
by John Keats (November-December, 1819).

    "Five minutes before one—brought down a moth
    With my new double-barrel—stew'd the thighs
    And made a very tolerable broth
    Princess turn'd dainty, to our great surprise,
    Alter'd her mind, and thought it very nice;
    Seeing her pleasant, try'd her with a pun,
    She frown'd; a monstrous owl across us flies
    About this time,—a sad old figure of fun;
Bad omen—this new match can't be a happy one.

    "From two to half-past, dusky way we made,
    Above the plains of Gobi,—desert, bleak;
    Beheld afar off, in the hooded shade
    Of darkness, a great mountain (strange to speak),
    Spitting, from forth its sulphur-baken peak,
    A fan-shap'd burst of blood-red, arrowy fire,
    Turban'd with smoke, which still away did reek,
    Solid and black from that eternal pyre,
Upon the laden winds that scantly could respire.

    "Just upon three o'clock a falling star
    Created an alarm among our troop,
    Kill'd a man-cook, a page, and broke a jar,
    A tureen, and three dishes, at one swoop,
    Then passing by the princess, singed her hoop:
    Could not conceive what Coralline was at,
    She clapp'd her hands three times and cry'd out 'Whoop!'
    Some strange Imaian custom. A large bat
Came sudden 'fore my face, and brush'd against my hat.
