Lieutenant Reynard for companion chose
To travel with a goat with horns so high ;
The latter saw no farther than his nose,
The former was well versed in trickery.
Compelled by drought, they ventured down a well ;
There drank abundantly, and quenched their thirst.
Said Reynard “ Gaffer, canst thou tell
How we may now get out, and which the first ?
’Tis not enough, my friend, to drink ;
But stop ; I have it now, I think,
Raise up thy hoofs and horns against the wall,
Along thy back let me first gain the brink,
And when I’m on thy horns don’t fall :
By aid of this machine I shall. get out,
And then ’twill be thy bout. ”
“ So by my beard,” said Gaffer, “ it shall be,
I'm proud to travel with great wits like thee !
I should have tortured my poor brain,
And cudgelled it, alas ! in vain.
”Sir Reynard left the well and friend behind,
Preached him a very pretty sermon,
That might to patience him determine.“
If Heaven,” he said, “to thee had been as kind,
In gift of knowledge, as in length of beard,
Thou very wisely would'st have feared
Descending thus into a well ;
But I've escaped, and so farewell !
Use every effort to get out, my friend,
I've urgent business, and I must away---
Business, dear Gaffer, that I can't delay.
”In every matter we should mind the end.
