THE FAUN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Ha! Sir, I have seen you sniffing and snoozling
Last Line: "and scare itself to spasms."
Subject(s): Horticulture

Ha! sir, I have seen you sniffing and snoozling
about among my flowers.
And what, pray, do you know about
horticulture, you capriped?
"Come, Auster, come Apeliota,
And see the faun in our garden.
But if you move or speak
This thing will run at you
And scare itself to spasms."
