    Now musing o'er the changing scene
    Farmers behind the tavern screen
    Collect; with elbows idly press'd
    On hob, reclines the corner's guest,
    Reading the news to mark again
    The bankrupt lists or price of grain.
    Puffing the while his red-tipt pipe
    He dreams o'er troubles nearly ripe,
    Yet, winter's leisure to regale,
    Hopes better times, and sips his ale.

What Elysium have ye known,
Happy field or mossy cavern,
Choicer than the Mermaid Tavern?

What care if the day
Be turned to gray,
What care if the night come soon!
We may choose the pace
Who bow for grace,
At the Inn of the Silver Moon.

He who has not been at a tavern knows not what a paradise it is.
O holy tavern! O miraculous tavern!--holy, because no carking
cares are there, nor weariness, nor pain; and miraculous, because
of the spits, which themselves turn round and round!

You may go to Carlisle's and to Almanac's too;
And I'll give you my Head if you find such a Host,
For Coffee, Tea, Chocolate, Butter, or Toast;
How he welcomes at once all the World and his Wife,
And how civil to Folks he ne'er saw in his Life.

Where on each face he sees a smile?

He had scarcely gone a short league, when Fortune, that was
conducting his affairs from good to better, discovered to him the
road, where he also espied an Inn. Sancho positively maintained
it was an Inn, and his master that it was a castle; and the
dispute lasted so long that they arrived there before it was
determined.
