Poem by Jonathan Swift


At Holyhead


O NEPTUNE! Neptune! must I still
Be here detained against my will?
Is this your justice when I m come
Above two hundred miles from home,
Oer mountains steep, oer dusty plains,
Half choked with dust, half drowned with rains,
Only your godship to implore
To let me kiss your other shore?
A boon so small! but I may weep
While you re, like Baal, fast asleep.



Jonathan Swift
