Enigma Signed F.A.W.

Communicated by Mr Vignoles

In jerkin short, and nut brown coat I live;
Pleasure to all, and pain to all I give:
Quivers I have, and painted arrows too;
Gold in my dart, and iron in my shoe:
I never eat, and yet I’m always full;
Poisons from herbs, and sweets from flow’rs I cull;
I never read, yet often times I write;
I never go to war, yet always fight;
Distorted back I have, and earthen scrip;
Black is my face, and blubber’d is my lip:
No eyes have I, and yet I always weep;
Sleeping I wake, and waking I do sleep.
