THE NEW-FOREST PAUPER. I
A Lyrical Ballad. The Justice, in his elbow-chair,
Though age so gently press'd him, he Sat, while a Parish Overseer,
By accident was not uncross'd ; At much expence of breath and action, It was the rougher foe to him, 14 And eke in high dissatisfaction,
And robb'd him of a precious limb, Address'd his worship's ear.
His left-side arm was lost. His tale in brief (though brevity
Thus maim'd, yet he, you still would say, He studied not) was that a Pauper, From no inglorious stock was bred ; Who of the parish claimed support,
He bore an air of hardihood, Pray'd for this bounty in a sort
Of freedom breathed from the wild wood, Most monstrous and improper.
Where his prime life was led. The needy wretch had strongly begg'd
With open front he stood a picture d. Some pittance to his share might fall;
And though his frock gave you to trace, - With which, to manage as he may, By the loose dangling sleeve, his loss, Nor drone his scrap of life away
It did not mar his port; he was He Within the work-house wall.
A model still of rustic grace. This to the man in office seem'd
This thread-bare frock, unicouthly patchd, A favour inadmissible.
Badge of the craft he erst had plied, - 'Twas casting on the house a slur, A forest livery had been ; And on him too, the officer,
And then in colour 'twas as green Who govern'd it so well.
As leaves in summer-tide. The applicant of whom he spake,
But now its joyous gloss was gone In hale old age before them stood ; For suns, and winds, and dews, and showers, Time had not shorn his temples bare, Had robb'd it of it's honours bright, But on them his once chesnut hair And changed it to the rusty plight In sowy whiteness flow'd.
Of autumn's soberer bowers.
Such was old Arthur Bromfield_such
There was a sparkling in his eyes,
And wish'd it still, and had been able,
'Twas his to watch the antler'd herd, “ And when it nigh'd to Christmas-tide, Which peering pass'd in mute alarm, I cut the holly's glorious bough, But as he got into an oak,
To deck our parish-church withal ; A branch decay'd beneath him broke, And some I carried to the hall, And thence he lost his arm.
With merry misletoe. “Well, Arthur,” said the Magistrate, “ Such were my shifts, poor helps they were " What in thy favour can'st aver ? For eking out those means of mine :There must, forsooth, be weighty cause But now my wits are at an end, To reckon thee, 'gainst parish laws, And I shall thankfully depend An out-door pensioner ?”
On what your worship may assign.” “An' please your honour," quoth old Ar. Spake the Overseer :-“ His worship will thur,
Give us an order to receive you “ I know nought of their rules about it; Into the House.”-A spot of ire But this I will make bold to say,
Glow'd on the veteran's cheek like fire : I'd scorn to take the parish pay,
My presence would but grieve Could I earn bread without it.
you. “ Born in the woods, up from a boy “ I've lived among the ranging deer, I've been a roving forester,
Till leaves and greensward, air and light, And fairly earn'd, till latterly,
I almost need as much as they : My food, and fire, and livery,
And where my blithe companions stray, By keeping the King's deer.
Those haunts cannot quit. “ Three years are gone since this befel ;" * Your house to me would be a prison ; And here he touch'd his empty sleeve. For I've in open forest spent “ And though no longer fit to be
My threescore years, without controul ;A forest-groom, yet zealously
No,-give the smallest weekly dole, By my own work I strove to live.
And I'll be gratefully content.” The
ranger gave a bounty, when “ It cannot be," quoth the Overseer.From service I was forced to go,
The Justice nodded in assent, And with it I two years was fed ;
And said with mildness,“ That retreat, Since which this hand has got me bread, From what you apprehend of it, And that with hard ado.
Will prove far different.”
