Excerpt from Elegant Extracts, or Useful and Entertaining Pieces of Poetry, Selected for the Improvement of Young Persons: Being Similar in Design to Elegant Extracts in Prose
But it is really super¿uous to expatiate either on the delight or the utility of Poetry. The subject... has been exhausted and, whatever a few men of little taste and feeling, or of minds entirely Sordid and secular, may object, Such are' the charms of the Goddess, such her powerful in¿uence over the heart of man, that she will never want voluntary votaries at her shrine. The Author of N a ture has kindly implanted in man a love of Poetry; to solace him under the labours and sorrows of life. A great part of the Scriptures is poetry and verse.
