Lady Caroline Ponsonby Lamb
'Worse than adversity the Childe befell;
He felt the fulness of satiety.'
I read the "Christabel;"
I read the "Missionary;"
Pretty - very:
I tried at "Ilderim;"
I read a sheet of "Marg'ret of Anjou;"
I turned a page of Webster's "Waterloo;"
I looked at Wordsworth's milk-white "Rylstone Doe;"
I read "Glenarvon," too, by Caro Lamb;
