"From whose mirth,/ Pelted with buds, the frowning winter wrapp'd/ His white robe round him, like a minister/ Disgraced, that from the uprisen people runs,/ And fled barefooted, muttering, 'Motley fools/ That fling a saucy triumph in the face/ Of fleeting power, sing% Dance% pavilion all/ The tipsy tops of yonder swaggering trees/ With tassel'd fringe% On every wanton puff/ Of passing wind swing out your banners blithe%/ Carpet with squander'd broidery, green and gold,/ The dull land decked for your audacious march%/ Break open earth's hidden treasures% twirl and toss/ Your silly tinkling timbrels that proclaim/ A world's subversion% Fools, I shall return.'"
