INSCRIBED TO R. A****, ESQ.
Let not Ambition mock their useful toil,
Their homely joys and destiny obscure;
The bort but simple annals of the Poor.
My lov’d, my honour'd, much respected
No mercenary bard his homage pays ;
With honest pride, I scorn each selfish end,
The lowly train in life's fequefter'd scene;
What A**** in a Cottage would have been; Ah! tho' his worth unknown, far happier there,
November chill blaws loud wi' angry sugh ;
The short’ning winter-day is near a close;
