Context from: Tom Thumb: And, The Tragedy of Tragedies

SCENE the Court of King Arthur, and a Plain thereabouts.

ACT I

SCENE I

SCENE, The Palace.
DOODLE, NOODLE.



DOODLE. Sure, such a 1Day as this was never seen!
The Sun himself, on this auspicious Day,
Shines, like a Beau in a new Birth-Day Suit:
This down the Seams embroider'd, that the Beams.
All Nature wears one universal Grin.

NOODLE. This Day, O Mr. Doodle, is a Day
Indeed, a Day we never saw before.
The mighty Thomas Thumb victorious comes;
Millions of Giants crowd his Chariot Wheels,
Giants! to whom the Giants in Guild-hall
Are Infant Dwarfs. They frown, and foam, and roar,
While Thumb regardless of their Noise rides on.
So some Cock-Sparrow in a Farmer's Yard,
Hops at the Head of an huge Flock of Turkeys.

DOODLE. When Goody Thumb first brought this Thomas forth,
The Genius of our Land triumphant reign'd;
Then, then, Oh Arthur! did thy Genius reign.

Yeah. Maybe this is a mask for hiding the true emotion?

Nature's 1 universal, rare grin,
Watch its light as it turns dim.

Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.
