EXCERPT:

A fox once practised, ’tis believed,
A stratagem right well conceived.
The wretch, when in the utmost strait
By dogs of nose so delicate,
Approach’d a gallows, where,
A lesson to like passengers,
Or clothed in feathers or in furs,
Some badgers, owls, and foxes, pendent were.



COMMENTS:

The translation is in verse; a head-start on lyrics.
