THE

BOOK OF ENGLISH POETRY:

WITH CRITICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL

sketches of the Ports.

Thoughts married to immortal verse,

The memories of the past embalmed in song,
And echoes of the dead which still rehearse

Fond melodies that to our sires belong,
Reviving living scenes, for ever bright and young."

London:
T. NELSON AND SONS, PATERNOSTER ROW;

AND EDINBURGH.

MDCCCLIII.

280.s.94.
