The fairest of the purring train,
Her master's love had so much gain'd,
That he from Jupiter obtain'd
To make her woman and his wife.
When mindful of her former life,
Jove saw her leave the bridal bed,
To catch a mouse, he laughing said:
"Forms we may alter as we will,
But Nature will be Nature still."
