POETRY

GOD to his untaught children sent

Law, order, knowledge, art, from high,
And ev’ry heav’nly favour lent,

The world’s hard lot to qualify.
They knew not how they should behave,

For all from Heav’n stark-naked came;
But Poetry their garments gave,

And then not one had cause for shame.

1816.
