Punch,  46 (1864), 220–21.

May Groans



Poetry, Drollery



    Written by 'a Sensitive Londoner, with a tendency to Dyspepsia and a hatred of Conventionalism, Poetry, and other Humbug', the poem laments the dearth of May months answering 'the poet's description'. Ignoring the seasonal effects of the weather 'on health and digestion' and forgetting the existence of such common afflictions as rheumatism, wonders 'what are the joys of May, / As known in London'? (220)
