Boothby: The Peacock and the Crane

Shun vanity; the brave and wise
Show and appearances despise.
Spreading his moons, a Peacock ey'd
A Crane with supercilious pride.
Fine are your feathers," says the Crane,
"But fixt to earth you still remain,
While, borne aloft, I wing my way
Through regions of ethereal day."
