1707 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. Thomas Yalden

Thomas Tickell, in Oxford, a Poem (1707) 7.



Apollo smiles on Magdalen's peaceful Bow'rs,
Perfumes the Air, and paints the Grot with Flow'rs,
Where Yalden learn'd to gain the Myrtle Crown,
And ev'ry Muse was fond of Addison.
