A wolf reduced to skin and bone,
So well the dogs had watched their care,
Met with a wildered mastiff stout as fair,
Fat, in good case, and straying all alone ;
Gladly Sir Wolf had made the attack,
And tore his belly from his back.
He fain would have his dinner ;
But he must to battle fall,
With a mastiff strong and tall,
Which kept in awe the sinner.
Most humbly therefore he the silence broke,
And pretty compliments admiring spoke,
About his goodly size and fat. ”
“ Why, ” said the Dog, “ you soon may equal that ;
Leave but your woods and come along with me,
And from your wretched, starving neighbours flee ;
For here you live by fighting or by fetches ;
No easy cheer, no certain state,
Poor, despicable, hungry, shabby wretches :
Corne follow me and share a better fate. ”
“ And what's the work, ” said Wolf, “ required in place ? ”
“ A trifie, ”—answered Mastiff, “ just to chase
Beggars and men with sticks away ;
Fawn on the family, and please the master,
Which mounts our wages up the faster ;
Platesful of broken victuals every day,
Pullets’ and pigeons’ bones are on us pressed ;
You've no idea how we're caressed. ”
The Wolf o'ercome assented weeping,
He formed great popes of such high keeping.
As they advanced he saw the Dog's neck bare.
What's that ?" he cried.— “ Nothing. ” — “ Nothing ? why pause ? ”
“ Pshaw ! what ye see, perhaps is worn-off hair ;
The collar I'm tied up in is the cause. ”
“ Tied ! ” cried the Wolf, “" ye don't run where ye will ? ”
“ Not always.— But no matter ; we've our fill."
“ Have you indeed ? I really do not care
Now, for your sumptuous fare ;
For liberty I count all treasures light. ”—
He said, and fled, and still holds on his flight.
