Excerpt from The Poetical Works of Alexander Pope, Esq., Vol. 2: To Which Is Prefixed the Life of the Author

Tie up the knocker, say I'm sick, I'm dead.' The dog-star rages nay, 'tis past a doubt, All Bedlam, or Parnassus, is let out Fire in each eye, and papers in each hand, They rave, recite, and madden round the land. 'hat walls can guard me, or what shades can h They pierce my thickets, through my grot they g By land, by water, they renew the charge; They stop the chariot, and they board the barge No place is sacred, not the church is flee, E'en Sunday shines no sabbath-day to me; Then from the Mint walks forth the man of rh' Happy to catch me - just at dinner time. Is there a parson, much bemused in beer.
