THE BELLMAN'S SPEECH.


The Bellman himself they all praised to the skies—

 Such a carriage, such ease and such grace!

Such solemnity, too! One could see he was wise,

 The moment one looked in his face!

 Without the least vestige of land:

And the crew were much pleased when they found it to be

 A map they could all understand.
