1766 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

William Julius Mickle

R. S—l, "To the Author of Pollio, an Elegiac Ode, wherein he laments the Death of his Brother" St. James's Chronicle (25 January 1766).



Yes, you have shewn what we but seldom see,
True heart-felt Sorrow in an Elegy:
Yet, hence, though not a Witch, I'll read your Fate,
Your Brother surely left you no Estate.
