On Oxford
by John Keats (September, 1817).

       The Gothic looks solemn,
       The plain Doric column
Supports an old Bishop and Crosier;
       The mouldering arch,
       Shaded o'er by a larch
Stands next door to Wilson the Hosier.

       Vicè—that is, by turns,—
       O'er pale visages mourns
The black tassell'd trencher or common hat;
       The Chantry boy sings,
       The Steeple-bell rings,
And as for the Chancellor—dominat.

       There are plenty of trees,
       And plenty of ease,
And plenty of fat deer for Parsons;
       And when it is venison,
       Short is the benison,—
Then each on a leg or thigh fastens.
