Grasshopper Green is a comical chap
Dressed in the best of wear
Bright little trousers jacket and cap
That is his summer fare

Out in the meadow he loves to go
Playing away in the sun
Its hoppity skippity high and low
Summers the time for fun

Here the context, from : Moll Flanders Chapter 38

Now I seemed landed in a safe harbour, after the stormy voyage of life past was at an end, and I began to be thankful for my deliverance. I sat many an hour by myself, and wept over the remembrance of past follies, and the dreadful extravagances of a wicked life, and sometimes I flattered myself that I had sincerely repented.

But there are temptations which it is not in the power of human nature to resist, and few know what would be their case if driven to the same exigencies. As covetousness is the root of all evil, so poverty is, I believe, the worst of all snares. But I waive that discourse till I come to an experiment.

Excellent reading : http://www.online-literature.com/defoe/moll_flanders/38/


Thank you very much monamagda.
