To Penelope

(1)

THIS day, of all our days, has done
The worst for me and you:--
'T is just six years since we were one,
And five since we were two.


November 5, 1820.


FOOTNOTES:

The Charity Ball The Charity Ball

The Charity Ball
The Charity Ball.(1)WHAT matter the pangs of a husband and father, If his sorrows in exile be great or be small, So the Pharisee's glories around her she gather, And the saint patronises her "Charity Ball!" What matters--a heart which, though faulty, was feeling, Be driven to excesses which once could appal-- That the Sinner should suffer is only fair dealing, As the Saint keeps her charity back for "the Ball!"December 10,

Stanzas (when A Man Hath No Freedom To Fight For At Home)
Stanzas.(1) WHEN a man hath no freedom to fight for at home, Let him combat for that of his neighbours; Let him think of the glories of Greece and of Rome, And get knocked on the head for his labours. To do good to Mankind is the chivalrous plan, And is always as nobly requited; Then battle for Freedom wherever you can, And, if not shot or hanged, you'll get knighted.November
