[ playing,When I sally forth in the morning, gailyThe birds of the neighbourhood gather round,keeping about me every day;Fish come from the pool,And stand still in the water to hear me,Listening to songs and waltzesAnd sweet melody from John.The forge where the impetuous steed took head is only about fifty yards fromShortens, where the runaway was prevailed on to stop. S. O C.The tune of these songs is a close variant of that printed in the Folk SongSocietys Journal, Vol. VI., p. 115, to another satirical poem by Crowley.A.M.F.5.
