A certain wolf, about the time
Warm zephyrs to the fields restore their prime,
When animals all quit their wintry home,
And o'er the valleys for their pasture roam ;
A wolf, I say, who'd seen the winter pass,
Came forth and spied a horse just sent to grass.
His joy the reader fairly may opine.
“ Fine game to see thee in my claws, I say.
Ah ! wert thou but a sheep, thou shouldst be mine ;
But shifting is required for such a prey :
Let's shift it then. ” Advancing slow,
He said, “ As pupil of Hippocrates,
I know the virtues, if your worship please,
Of all the simples that in these meads grow.
Yes, without flattering, I can cure
The greatest ills that beasts endure.
Would great Don Courser own he's ill,
I'd cure him gratis by my skill ;
For to behold him as I see,
Grazing so wantonly and free,
Proves illness,—so say all the faculty.”
“ I'm ill,” replied the horse, “ with pain I trot ;
’Tis an impostume ander foot I've got.”
“ My son,” the doctor said, “ there is no part
Susceptible of so much smart.
I serve our lords the horses when they’re ill,
And, as a surgeon, have some little skill.
” Our rogue but waited for the purposed crime,
To catch his patient in the nick of time.
The other guessed the trick,
And lent him such a kick,
That to a mummy beat his jaws,
And useless made his teeth and claws.
“ I'm rightly served,” Wolf muttered in his mind,
“ Each one should follow his own trade, I find ;
I've played the Herbalist, and rue it sore,
Who never but a Butcher was before.”
