1781 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

George Colman

William Tasker?, "Impromptu-Epigram addressed to Mr. Colman, on the Success of his Summer-Theatre, in the Hay-market" Morning Chronicle (31 July 1781).



The rescu'd stage, no longer now shall feel
The daring insult of the dancer's heel;
The season too, you critically hit,
Since burning Phoebus is the God of Wit;
And thy charm'd auditors now clearly see,
How well the Summer and thy Wit agree.
