1830 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Allan Cunningham

Henry Glassford Bell, in "The Men whom I get Glorious with!" Edinburgh Literary Journal (30 October 1830) 225.



There's CUNNINGHAM I get glorious with!—
Were Allan to brew a "peck o' maut,"
I'd give Robert Burns any odds he sought,
That he never spent a blither night
Than I should do with that right leal wight!
Cunningham's the man for a swig at the can—
So there's Cunningham I get glorious with!
