    His talk was like a spring, which runs
    With rapid change from rocks to roses:
    It slipped from politics to puns,
    It passed from Mahomet to Moses;
    Beginning with the laws which keep
    The planets in their radiant courses,
    And ending with some precept deep
    For dressing eels, or shoeing horses.

    Good-night to the Season!—the dances,
    The fillings of hot little rooms,
    The glancings of rapturous glances,
    The fancyings of fancy costumes;
    The pleasures which Fashion makes duties,
    The praisings of fiddles and flutes,
    The luxury of looking at beauties,
    The tedium of talking to mutes;

    And when religious sects ran mad,
    He held, in spite of all his learning,
    That if a man’s belief is bad,
    It will not be improved by burning.
