Though not less loved, in Wapping or the Strand:
Divine in hookas, glorious in a pipe
When tipp'd with amber, mellow, rich, and ripe;...
Yet thy true lovers more admire by far
Thy naked beauties - give me a cigar!

In learned doctor's spite;
Thy clouds all other clouds dispel
And lap me in delight.
