HERMAN MELVILLE: Pipe Song

herman_melville103

Herman Melville
(1819 – 1891)

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!
