Lord Epsom

(Percy, first Earl of Epsom, in the County of Surrey)


A Horse, Lord Epsom did bestride
With mastery and quiet pride.
He dug his spurs into its hide.

The Horse, discerning it was pricked,
Incontinently bucked and kicked,
A thing that no one could predict!

Lord Epsom clearly understood
The High-bred creature's nervous mood,
As only such a horseman could.
Dismounting, he was heard to say
That it was kinder to delay
His pleasure to a future day

* * * * *

He had the Hunter led away.


(The end)

(Sent with some of the Author's Poems.) O could I give thee India's wealth, As I this trifle send; Because thy joy in both would be To share them with a friend. But golden sands did never grace The Heliconian stream; Then take what gold could never buy-- An honest bard's esteem.(The end)Robert Burns's poem: Lines To John M'murdo, Esq. Of Drumlanrig
