1822 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Thomas Campbell

Paddy, in "Metricum Symposium Ambrosianum" Blackwood's Magazine 12 (July 1822) 80.



Now, the Minstrel of Gertrude — Compiler of Colburn—
Once the bard of high Scotland — now that of High Holborn;
Whose jinglings the Cockney-lambs lead like a ram-bell,
And, after the toast, strike up, "Ranting Tom Campbell."
