"On with the dance! let joy be unconfined;
No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet
To chase the glowing hours with flying feet."

On with the dance and amplify the band!
Invite the neighbours with insistent beat
To share for nothing our four-guinea treat,
Shaking and twisting on the rumpled sheet.


cf Byron, The Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, Canto III, XXII

Oxford Times, 21 June 1968
