1822 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

James Thomson

Anonymous, "Lines written in a young Lady's Thomson's Seasons" Morning Post (26 November 1822).



I found her fair as Spring — my heart approv'd—
Blooming as Summer — more and more I lov'd—
Blushing as Autumn — all my soul was fir'd—
But cold as Winter — and my hopes expir'd.
