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.
