Humorous Poems: V. Nonsense
Nonsense
Thomas Moore (1779–1852)
 
  GOOD reader, if you e’er have seen,
    When Phœbus hastens to his pillow,
    The mermaids with their tresses green
  Dancing upon the western billow;
  If you have seen at twilight dim,        5
    When the lone spirit’s vesper hymn
    Floats wild along the winding shore,
The fairy train their ringlets weave
  Glancing along the spangled green;
    I you have seen all this, and more—        10
  God bless me! what a deal you ’ve seen!
