Book review

Excerpt from Poems, Consisting of the Following Pieces, Viz: I. Ode Written Upon the Death of Mr. Gray; II. For the Monument of a Favourite Spaniel; III. Another Inscription for the Same; IV. Translation From Dante, Canto XXXIII

What avails the Poet's art?
What avails his magic hand?
Can he arrest Death's pointed dart,
Or charm to sleep his murderous band?
Well I know thee, gentle Shade,
That tuneful voice, that eagle eye. -
Quick bring me flowers that ne'er shall fade,
The laurel wreath that ne'er shall die;
With every honour deck his funeral bier,
For He to every Grace, and every Muse was dear!

III.

The listening Dryad, with attention still,
On tiptoe oft would near the Poet steal,
To hear him sing upon the lonely hill
Of all the wonders of th' expanded vale;
The distant Hamlet, and the winding Stream,
The Steeple shaded by the friendly yew,
Sunk in the wood the Sun's departing gleam,
The grey-robed Landscape stealing from the view.
