To The Hetman, Platoff (vignette 22)

O ancient warrior! as we hail thee,
And behold thy cordial smile,
We hope that greetings ne'er may fail thee,
Such as those of Britain's isle.

They are, although so seeming rude,
Given only where we think them due;
Most courteous, e'en when they intrude,
Too vehement, but always true!

Applauses which no art can fashion,
Which speak the feelings and no more;
Which give respect the glow of passion,
When worth and valour we adore;

Blest is the hero in receiving!
And pride may scoff at, or despise,
What if but once sincere believing,
Is grateful to the good and wise.

LINES.Written for a Young Gentleman to speak at the Audit at St. Saviour's School, Southwark, after the Battle of Trafalgar. --------While others, from the Greek and Roman page,Declare the prudent councils of the sage;Or, in recital of achievements bold,Retrace the motives and the deeds of old,I, in the accents of my native clime,And, at the moment, shaking hands with Time,I, whom our recent loss forbids to roam,Shall plant my mourning standard nearer home!At the sad shrine where gallant Nelson sleeps,Where Britain bends her lofty head and weeps,Deeply lamenting that she cannot prove,The fond excess of dearly purchas'd love.Is there a
