And with one arm I strut;

The news of all the day;
And for my silence I’m fed well,
But empty sent away.

And as on her the short-liv’d pride,
Sol’s friendly beams bestow,
So I my charms, extended wide,
To the fame patron owe.

I with a gentle touch can do;
And many in the streets would stand,
Were I not, as friend, at hand
