1778 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Gen. Richard Fitzpatrick

Richard Tickell, in The Wreath of Fashion (1778) 6.



Fitzpatrick's Muse waits for some lucky hit;
For, still the slave of Chance, He throws at wit.
While Townshend his pathetic bow displays,
And Princely Boothby silent homage pays.
