Vineyard
 
A vineyard is beautifully laden with ripe clusters, which a little boy is watching as he sits at the hedgerows; and around him two foxes; one is roaming up and down the rows, spoiling the ripe grapes.
        Banks’s Theocritus.—Idyll I. Page 3.
  1
Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines; for our vines have tender grapes.
        Canticles, Chap. II. Verse 15; quoted by Mr. Banks.
