"Black As Jet"
"Ah! Black as jet, but long ago
Indignity and lace,
The Ladies wore around their necks
A flash of ebon grace.
But oh! To-day Great Broughton mourns,
Still waves the merry corn,
The beer flows at Jet Miners' Inn,
But jet's no longer worn.
Still, fashions change, mayhap some day
Again the craft will thrive,
And Yorkshire jet will ring the earth,
Black, flashing and alive."
