Excerpt from Poems on Facts and Fancies, Practical Points, Common Observation, Etc
For a memorandum this book was intended; Enjoyment and amusement also were blended. Sometimes I woo the fair Muse for an ode; She laughs and lures and leaves me at the node. Oft when I am winno... wing chaf from wheat, She lilts my lyre and makes my brain her seat. When I find grains of gold in some man's sand; On fancy, she paints pearls with her fair hand; Then I must swiftly string them into verses; Oft at the risk of reaping some men's curses. For shams and sycophants I have but scorn, Would I could confound such with Gabriel's horn. I've meed for human merit, high or low.
