Thomas Hood (1799-1845)|
No sun no moon!
No morn no noon
No dawn no dusk no proper time of day
No sky no earthly view
No distance looking blue
No road no street no "t'other side the way"
No end to any Row
No indications where the Crescents go
No top to any steeple
No recognitions of familiar people
No courtesies for showing 'em
No knowing 'em!
No traveling at all no locomotion
No inkling of the way no notion
"No go" by land or ocean
No mail no post
No news from any foreign coast
No park no ring no afternoon gentility
No company no nobility
No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds,
