  • The fiddler, in Somerville’s Hobbinol, a burlesque poem in three cantos. Twangdillo had lost one leg and one eye by a stroke of lightning on the banks of the Ister, but he was still merry-hearted.

    Yet still the merry bard without regret

    Bears his own ills, and with his sounding shell

    And comic phiz relleves his dropping friends.

    He tickles every string, to every note

    He bends his pliant neck, his single eye

    Twinkles with joy, his active stump bears time.
