A VILLAGE BLACKSMITH, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Here he, your law, vociferous wits
Last Line: Safe in their innocence and in their charms.
Subject(s): Blacksmiths


HERE he, your law, vociferous wits,
Strong son of the sounding anvil, sits;
Black and sharp his eyebrow edge,
His hand smites heavily as his sledge --
At will he kindles bright discourse,
Or blows it out, with blustrous force;
The fiery talk, with dominant clamour,
Moulds as hot metal with his hammer.
Yet this swart sinewy boisterer,
His wife and babe sit smiling near,
All fairness with all feebleness in her arms,
Safe in their innocence and in their charms.
