Red-vein’d Mohoggony

Odious! upon a Walnut-plank to dine!
No – the red-vein’d Mohoggony be mine!
Each Chest and Chair around my Room that stands,
Was shipp’d thro’ dangerous Seas from distant Lands…

From Poems on Several Occasions by the Rev. Thomas Warton, London, 1748.

One Response to Red-vein’d Mohoggony

  1. Mike Siemsen says:

    Those that in distant lands reside
    Stand back from their table and glow with pride
    Tis oak from England you’ll here them say
    From over the hills and far away
