TO A LADY WHO HAD OFFERED HIM A WREATH OF LAUREL, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Laurel is a sacred leaf
Last Line: And my crown is not a wrong.
Subject(s): Laurels


Laurel is a sacred leaf
And forbidden to be worn
Lest Apollo, flushed with scorn,
Shoot the rhymester for a thief.
Yet if any human grief
Be half uttered in a song
The dark laurel will belong
To all poets that have writ.
Let your heart but mend my wit
And my crown is not a wrong.
