" Under the hedge at my ease I'll stay,

Singing so jolly the livelong day.

My horse is a Rommany, just like me,

He's stealing the farmer's oats, you see.

Cheer up, brother, never sorrow !

Luck will come again to-morrow.


If you care for nothing, you needn't doubt

But luck will come by and will find you out


For jolly good luck, as you well may see,

Is a friend to the regular Rommany.

Cheer up, brother, never sorrow,

Luck will come again to-morrow."

Janet Tuckey.

The incident here described is substantially the same as one

narrated by an old Gipsy in Surrey as having occurred to

liiinself. In justice to the old man, it should be admitted that

the theft of the donkey and horse is a poetic fiction.
