POEMS.

MISS KILMANSEGG AND HER PRECIOUS

LEG.

A GOLDEN LEGEND.

“What is here?
Gold? yellow, glittering, precious gold?”.

TIMON OF ATHENS.

Wer Pedigree.
To trace the Kilmansegg pedigree,
To the very roots of the family tree,

Were a task as rash as ridiculous:
Through antediluvian mists as thick
As London fog such a line to pick
Were enough, in truth, to puzzle Old Nick,

Not to name Sir Harris Nicholas.

It would ’nt require much verbal strain
To trace the Kill-man, perchance, to Cain ;

But waving all such digressions, .*
Suffice it, according to family lore,
A Patriarch Kilmansegg lived of yore,
Who was famed for his great possessions.

VOL. II.
