1821 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. William Lisle Bowles

Anonymous, "Epigram. On Lord Byron's Game at 'Bowls'" The Literary Gazette (2 June 1821) 348.



No more "at Bowls" let Byron play,
And knock the "Bowls" about;
For "BOWLS" has fairly won the day,
And "Bowl'd" his Lordship out!
