To The Kind Reader

No one talks more than a Poet;

Fain he'd have the people know it.

Praise or blame he ever loves;

None in prose confess an error,

Yet we do so, void of terror,

In the Muses' silent groves.

What I err'd in, what corrected,

What I suffer'd, what effected,

To this wreath as flow'rs belong;

For the aged, and the youthful,

And the vicious, and the truthful,

All are fair when viewed in song.


1800.

I was a man!Next I formed the knightly planPrincess Fish to free;She was much too complaisant,Kindly welcomed me,--And I was gallant.Heav'nly bread her kisses proved,Glowing as the wine;Almost unto death I loved.Sun-s appeared to shineIn her dazzling charms.Who hath torn her from mine arms?Could no magic bandMake her
