And, ere she departed, she cried with a sigh,
"Ah! where are my favourites, Eliza and Tighe?
Eliza, who made of her 'Piercefield' a spot
That in classical memory ne'er is forgot!
And Tighe, who in fancy could soar from the grove to rove!
With immortalized 'Psyche' through aether
Nor, alas! these alone, do I miss from a scene
Where, dwelt they in life, they had earliest been,
To wait on the Muse that they loved, and receive
The laurel-wreath worthy of Phoebus to weave;
Yes, — Bowdler, and Barbauld, and Taylor beside,
Might have swell'd the assembly, its grace and its pride,
Had our festival fallen on earlier tide!"
