How fits his Umber Coat
The Tailor of the Nut?
Combined without a seam
Like Raiment of a Dream —

Who spun the Auburn Cloth?
Computed how the girth?
The Chestnut aged grows
In those primeval Clothes —

We know that we are wise —
Accomplished in Surprise —
Yet by this Countryman —
This nature — how undone!
