THE BELLMAN'S SPEECH.                        21
" We have sailed many months, we have sailed many weeks,
(Four weeks to the month you may mark), But never as yet ('tis your Captain who speaks)
Have we caught the least glimpse of a Snark!
" We have sailed many weeks, we have sailed many days,
(Seven days to the week I allow), But a Snark, on the which we might lovingly j§T gaze,
We have never beheld till now!
" Come, listen, my men. while I tell you again
The five unmistakable marks
D 2
