Lo! dey come, de peoples, much
De French, de Anglais, Yankee, Dutch―
Lo! dey come, and here dey view
De vorld of vaters ― not a few.
De peoples come, and den dey tell
De verse dey know not how to spell;
And what is very much absurd,
Dey ignorant of Anglais vord.
Ma foi, indeed I tink my verse
De best ― I'm sure 't is not the worst.
