“It was a Spirit, SHERIDAN! that breathed

O'er thy young mind such wildly-various power!
My soul hath marked thee in her shaping hour,
Thy temples with Hymettian flow'rets wreathed :
And sweet thy voice, as when o'er Laura's bier
Sad music trembled through Vauclusa's glade;
Sweet, as at dawn the love-lorn serenade
That wasts soft dreams to Slumber's listening ear.
Now patriot Rage! And indignation high
Swell the full tones! And now thy eye-beams dance
Meanings of Scorn and Wit's quaint revelry!”
