1770 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

William Woty

T. Underwood, "Extempore, to Mr. Woty, upon the late Publication of his Poetical Works" Lloyd's Evening Post (28 February 1770) 206.



If Sense and Harmony conjoin
To stamp each sentimental Line,
How great the Poet's Praise!
To such Desert this early Lay
A friendly Muse delights to pay,
'Tis Your's to wear the Bays.
