There were mushrooms aplenty: the lads ' foxies ' gather, In Lithuanian song praised more than is any other, These are maidenhood's emblems, no worm will them blight, And more strange, on them will not an insect alight. After slender ' boletus ' the young ladies throng, Which is famed as the colonel of mushrooms in song.

But the Tribune, of course, 'fly-bane' gathered.Book Three, Flirtations
