Epigram: ‘Amid all Triads let it be confest’
By Richard Garnett (1835–1906)
AMID all Triads let it be confest
The Chase, the Feast, the Song compose the best,
So aptly link’d a mutual aid to lend
To life’s enjoyment, their concurrent end.
The chase provides what doth to feasts belong;        5
The banquet prompts and animates the song;
The song, resounding with a twofold grace,
Cheers the repast, and celebrates the chase.
