1830 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Alaric Alexander Watts

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



There's WATTS, whom I get glorious with!—
Alaric Attila! would thou wert here!
But, alas! I have nought but a Souvenir
Of all that is grateful and pleasant in thee,
Yet here is thy health in good Burgundie!
Watts is the man for a swig at the can—
So there's Watts that I get glorious with!
