HORACE.
  When sunny summer ripens corn,
    And skylarks sing to gladen us,
  His lot is not without a thorn
    Who daily drives an omnibus.
  When hungry Road Cars hover near,
    In competition fierce and hot,
  What wonder that a scalding tear
    The driver's badge should sometimes blot!
  What wonder that a scalding tear.
    The driver's badge should sometimes blot.


  The constant tinkle of the bell,
    My nervous system knocks about,
  It rings a welcome or a knell
    As fares get in, or fares get out.
  Pedestrians with weary feet
    Will hail me for a penny ride,
  Until there comes in accents sweet
  The welcome shout of "Full inside!"
    Until there comes in accents sweet
  The welcome shout of "Full inside!"
