300                                THE COW CHACE.
Yet Bergen cows still ruminate,
Unconscious in the stall, What mighty means were used to get,
And loose them after all.
For many heroes bold and brave, From Newbridge and Tappan,
And those that drink Passaic's wave, And those who eat supaun;
And sons of distant Delaware,
And still remoter Shannon, And Major Lee with horses rare,
And Proctor with his cannon.
All wond'rous proud in arms they came,
What hero could refuse To tread the rugged path to fame,
Who had a pair of shoes!
At six, the host with sweating buff,
Arrived at Freedom's pole; When Wayne, who thought ■ he'd time enough,
Thus speechified the whole.
