The Cap and Bells, or, The Jealousies, Page 27
by John Keats (November-December, 1819).

    "She cry'd for chess—I play'd a game with her—
    Castled her king with such a vixen look,
    It bodes ill to his Majesty—(refer
    To the second chapter of my fortieth book,
    And see what hoity-toity airs she took).
    At half-past four the morn essay'd to beam—
    Saluted, as we pass'd an early rook—
    The Princess fell asleep, and, in her dream,
Talk'd of one Master Hubert, deep in her esteem.

    "About this time,—making delightful way,—
    Shed a quill-feather from my larboard wing—
    Wish'd, trusted, hop'd 'twas no sign of decay—
    Thank heaven, I'm hearty yet!—'twas no such thing:—
    At five the golden light began to spring,
    With fiery shudder through the bloomed cast;
    At six we heard Panthea's churches ring—
    The city all his unhiv'd swarms had cast,
To watch our grand approach, and hail us as we pass'd.

    "As flowers turn their faces to the sun,
    So on our flight with hungry eyes they gaze,
    And, as we shap'd our course, this, that way run,
    With mad-cap pleasure, or hand-clasp'd amaze;
    Sweet in the air a mild-ton'd music plays,
    And progresses through its own labyrinth;
    Buds gather'd from the green spring's middle-days,
    They scatter'd,—daisy, primose, hyacinth,—
Or round white columns wreath'd from capital to plinth.
