Страница 48 - The counsel's good, a Fox replies, Could we perform what you advise. Think what our ancestors have done — • A line of thieves from son to son ! To us descends the long disgrace, And infamy hath mark'd our race. Though we, like harmless sheep, should feed. Honest in thought, in word, and deed, Whatever hen-roost is decreas'd, We shall be thought to share the feast. The change shall never be believ'd : A lost good name is ne'er retriev'd.

How many thousand structures rise, To fence us from inclement skies ; For us he bears the sultry day, And stores up all our winter's hay; He sows, he reaps the harvest's gain ; We share the toil, and share the grain.
