Streams
 
Sinuous or straight, now rapid, and now slow;
Now murmuring soft, now roaring in cascades.

By the side of a murmuring stream,
  An elderly gentleman sat,
On the top of his head was his wig,
  And a-top of his wig was his hat.
        Anonymous.—The first verse of a song, which may be found in the “Vocal Cabinet,” Vol. I. Page 44; Publ. by Thomas Kelly, 17 Paternoster Row, A.D. 1820.
