    Drop down, O fleecy Fog and hide
    Her skeptic sneer, and all her pride!
    —Francis Bret Harte (1836–1902)

    In his sleeves, which were long,
    He had twenty-four packs,—
    Which was coming it strong,
    Yet I state but the facts;
    And we found on his nails, which were taper,
    What is frequent in tapers,—that’s wax.
    —Bret Harte (1836–1902)

    And he smiled a kind of sickly smile, and curled up on the floor, And the subsequent proceedings interested him no more.
    —Francis Bret Harte (1836–1902)
