Inscribed On A Work Of Hannah More's

Presented to the Author by a Lady.

     Thou flatt'ring mark of friendship kind,
     Still may thy pages call to mind
     The dear, the beauteous donor;
     Tho' sweetly female ev'ry part,
     Yet such a head, and more the heart
     Does both the sexes honour:
     She show'd her taste refin'd and just,
     When she selected thee;
     Yet deviating, own I must,
     For sae approving me:
     But kind still I'll mind still
     The giver in the gift;
     I'll bless her, an' wiss her
     A Friend aboon the lift.
