208 BARNEY MAGUIRE'S HISTORY OF THE CORONATION.
There was Baron Alten himself exalting,
And Prince Von Swartzenburg, and many more,
To tell the half of 'em was to the fore;
And Aldermanesses, and the Boord of Works;
“I'd be proud to see the likes among the Turks !"
Then the Queen, Heaven bless her! och ! they did dress her
In her purple garaments, and her goulden Crown;
With six young Ladies houlding up her gown.
The big drums bating, and the trumpets blow.
With his four-and-twenty fidlers all on a row!
Then the Lord Archbishop held a goulden dish up,
For to resave her bounty and great wealth,
Ye'll give the Clargy lave to dhrink your health!"
Boys! Here's your Queen! deny it if you can!
Sneezes at that, I'd like to see the man!"
Then the Nobles kneeling to the Powers appealing,
“Heaven send your Majesty a glorious reign !!!!
All in his scarlet gown and goulden chain.
But mighty sarious, looking fit to cry,
Throwing the thirteens, hit him in the eye.
Then there was praching, and good store of spaching,
With Dukes and Marquises on bended knee;
And the Queen said, “Ah! then, thank ye all for me!"
And sweet trombones with the silver tones,
To think his Lordship did not break his bones.
Then the Crames and the Custards, and the Beef and the Mustard,
All on the tombstones like a poultherer's shop,
And Wine, and Nagus, and Imparial Pop!
With fine Polonies, and rich Mellow Pears,
The sly ould Divil, underneath the stairs.
Then the cannons thunder'd, and the
Sure it's the proudest day that I'll have seen!
This narration splendid in swate poe-thry.
Faith, it's myself that's getting mighty dhry !
