Boothby: The Sick Kite

A Kite, long sick and like to die,
Begg'd of his mother to apply
With offerings at a neighbouring fane,
And prayers that health he might regain.
I will, says she; though much I fear
Little can be expected there,
From Gods their shrines so oft who see
Defrauded and defil'd by thee.
