Allan Ramsay

T. V., "To Aurelia, with Allan Ramsay's Songs. An Extempore" St. James's Chronicle (3 September 1774).



Go, happy Ramsay, meet thy due Reward,
Become the fair *Aurelia's fav'rite Bard;
Whose tuneful Voice will ev'ry Word inspire,
And give Enchantment to thy Muse's Lyre;
Transport the Soul with Rapture, joy, and Love,
And what it hears the last — will most approve.
T. V. w. x. y. z. Surrey.
