1782 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. Robert Potter

Anna Seward, in Poem to the Memory of Lady Miller (1782); Poetical Works (1810) 2:158.



Fir'd with the lofty strain of Grecian lore,
Whose light shone radiant on the morn of time,
The bard of Aeschylus in leisure hour,
Breath'd through the grove the lyric song sublime,
And see! poetic Sympathy ordains
Health to the kindling soul from his inspiring strains
