1882 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Sir Walter Raleigh

James Russell Lowell, Inscription, Raleigh Memorial Window (1882); Moulton, Library of Literary Criticism (1901-05) 1:596.



The New World's sons, from England's breasts we drew
Such milk as bids remember whence we came;
Proud of her Past, wherefrom our Present grew,
This window we inscribe with Raleigh's name.
