TO THE

Right Honorable WILLIAM, EARL OF LONSDALE, K. G.

ETC. ETC.

Ort, through thy fair domains, illustrious Peer!
In youth I roamed, on youthful pleasures bent
And mused in rocky cell or sylvan tent,
Beside swift-flowing Lowther's current clear.
-Now, by thy care befriended, I appear
Before thee LONSDALE, and this Work present,
A token (may it prove a monument!)
Of high respect and gratitude sincere,
Gladly would I have waited till my task
Had reached its close; but Life is insecure,
And Hope full oft fallacious as a dream:
Therefore, for what is here produced, I ask
Thy favor; trusting that thou wilt not deem
The offering, though imperfect, premature.

WILLIAM WORDS WORTH.
RYDAL MOUNT, WESTMORELAND,

July 29, 1814.
