    An aged thrush, frail, gaunt, and small,
    In blast-beruffled plume,

    Come round me, little childer;
    There, don’t fling stones at me
    Because I mutter as I go;
    But pity Moll Magee.

    Our foes should fling us down their mortal gage,
    And with a hostile step profane our sod!
    We shall not shrink, my brothers, but go forth
