1814 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Edward Thurlow

Anonymous, "To Lord Thurlow, on the Appearance of his Poem called 'Moonlight'" Morning Chronicle (25 January 1814).



THURLOW, why court the pallid orb of night?
Is HYMEN'S merry torch extinct so soon?
Or do we see reflected in "Moonlight,"
The chaste effulgence of your Honey-moon.
