1782 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Samuel Jackson Pratt

Anna Seward, in Poem to the Memory of Lady Miller (1782) 12 &n.



Near him a Bard, of many a fair design,
On the crown'd Vase the varied treasure pil'd,
And Oh! let moral Truth, and Fancy join,
To grace sweet Sympathy's poetic Child!
That his rich chaplet with the verse may vie,
Which throws the roseate ray on Nature's social tie!

*Near him a Bard — Mr. Pratt author of a late poem called, Sympathy, or Social Sketches.
