1817 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Dr. Henry Harington

D. Cabanel, "In Memory of Henry Harington, M.D." Gentleman's Magazine 87 (March 1817) 254.



The conflict's o'er; — the race of life is run:
Well hast thou sped, time-honour'd Harington!
Science, with Harmony and Taste combin'd,
Form'd the rare features of thy gifted mind:
While thy own Phoebus, with unconscious ray,
Cheer'd the calm ev'ning of thy setting day.
