Treasure Island

Herman Melville

(1 August 1819 – 28 September 1891 / New York City, New York)

Pipe Song


Care is all stuff:--
Puff! Puff!
To puff is enough:--
Puff! Puff
More musky than snuff,
And warm is a puff:--
Puff! Puff
Here we sit mid our puffs,
Like old lords in their ruffs,
Snug as bears in their muffs:--
Puff! Puff
Then puff, puff, puff,
For care is all stuff,
Puffed off in a puff--
Puff! Puff!

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
