Louder than the trump of fame|
Is the voice of Marjory Miller;
Time, the wildest beast can tame,
She's eternally the same:
Loud the mill's incessant clack,
Loud the clank of Vulcan's hammer,
Loud the deep-mouth'd cataract,
But louder far her dinsome clamour!
Nought on earth can equal be
To the noise of Marjory.
2. Calm succeeds the tempest's roar,|
Peace does follow war's confusion,
Dogs do bark and soon give o'er,
But she barks for evermore:
Loud's the sounding bleachfield horn,
Bat her voice is ten times louder!
Red's the sun on winter morn,
But her face is ten times redder !
She delights in endless strife,
Lord preserve's from such a wife!
