  • Five Eyes
    In Hans' old Mill his three black cats
    Watch the bins for the thieving rats.
    Whisker and claw, they crouch in the night,
    Their five eyes smouldering green and bright: ...

    'O dear me!' says Madeleine Rose; ...

William Cowper Poem
Denner's Old Woman
 by William Cowper

In this mimic form of a matron in years,
How plainly the pencil of Denner appears!
The matron herself, in whose old age we see
Not a trace of decline, what a wonder is she!
No dimness of eye, and no cheek hanging low,
No wrinkle, or deep-furrow-d frown on the brow!
Her forehead indeed is here circled around
With locks like the ribbon with which they are bound;
