1780 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Mary Robinson

Eugenius, "Impromptu on seeing Mrs. Robinson in the Widow Brady" Morning Chronicle and London Advertiser (28 May 1780).



When Mira on the stage appears,
So much she charms my eyes, my ears,
And so my heart bewitches;
That were the lovely fair one mine,
A husband's right I should resign,
And let her wear the breeches.
Tuesday evening, 11 o'clock.
