To My Nose
Alfred Henry Forrester (Alfred Crowquill) (1804–1872)
 
KNOWS he that never took a pinch,
Nosey, the pleasure thence which flows?
Knows he the titillating joys
        Which my nose knows?
O nose, I am as proud of thee        5
As any mountain of its snows;
I gaze on thee, and feel that pride
        A Roman knows!
