FRAGMENT OF OLDE STUFFE, by            
First Line: Oh, heavy clouds have hid the mellow sun
Last Line: Full:—hopelessly.


Oh, heavy clouds have hid the mellow sun
Full hopelessly;
The tired year's creaking course is all but run,
The were-wolf howl of chill blasts has begun;
Life's joy doth vanish (when the summer's done)—
Full hopelessly.

So deem not me as wicked, wild, or rude
(—Full hopelessly—)
If guides me on this melancholy mood,
I barter cash for what some imp has brewed,
And, sprawling by my hearth-fire, get quite stewed—
Full:—hopelessly.
