Just wanted to share: a yorkshire toast

(Anonymous)
A Yorkshire Toast

A' wish thi health, A'wish thi wealth, A' wish thi pe-ace and plenty.
May thi niver do nowt but enjoy thisen, an' live 'til thar hundred an twenty.
If thar single, A' wish thi no crosses, all crowns.
If thar married, A' wish thi plenty o' bairns.
May tha live on eggs an' milk an' beef;
May tha niver be short of a set o' good teeith.
May thi coilhouse be full, and thi cupboard be packed;
Ha' to pay the rent, may thi niver be racked;
May thi live 'till thar stalled, and then when tha dee,
May thi flee oop to 'eaven 'an save a corner for me.
