George Colman Door Poems
- 1. The Water-fiends
On a wild Moor, all brown and bleak,
Where broods the heath-frequenting grouse,
There stood a tenement antique;
Lord Hoppergollop's country house.
- 2. My Night-gown And Slippers
TOM, DICK, and WILL, were little known to Fame;--
But to the Ale-house, oftentimes, they came,
- 3. The Elder Brother.
Centrick, in London noise, and London follies,
Proud Covent Garden blooms, in smoky glory;
For chairmen, coffee-rooms, piazzas, dollies,
Cabbages, and comedians, fame'd in story!
