1830 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Lawrence Macdonald

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



There's MACDONALD, whom I get glorious with!—
I love the poet-sculptor well,
For his soul is full of art's deep spell;
And forms of beauty float past his eyes,
Like golden clouds in evening skies!
Macdonald's the man for a swig at the can—
So there's Macdonald whom I get glorious with!
