Not illustrated. 1896 Excerpt: ... guard his store And gall the unbelievers too, He builds a shrine and, what is more, Procures a painter whom I knew, One Buti (he's with God) to paint A holy picture there--no less Than Virgin Mary free from taint Borne to the sky by angels: yes! VIII. Which shrine he fixed, --who says him nay?--A-facing with its picture-side Not as you'd think, the public way, But just where sought these hounds to hide Their carrion from that very truth Of Mary's triumph: not a hound Could act his mummeries uncouth But Mary shamed the pack all round! IX.

Whereas, each phiz upturned beholds Mary, I warrant, soaring brave! And in a trice, beneath the folds Of filthy garb which gowns each knave, Down drops it--there to hide grimace, Contortion of the mouth and nose At finding Mary in the place They'd keep for Pilate, I suppose!

XII. Forthwith, a posse, if you please, Of Rabbi This and Rabbi That Almost go down upon their knees To get him lay the picture flat. The spokesman, eighty years of age, Gray as a badger, with a goat's--Not only beard but bleat, 'gins wage War with our Mary. Thus he dotes: --XIII. "Friends, grant a grace! How Hebrews toil Thro' life in Florence--why relate To those who lay the burden, spoil Our paths... Hide synopsis
