THE STEAM-ENGINE: CANTO 10. ROSES ALL THE WAY, by            
First Line: At length the steam-chiefs with replenish'd force
Last Line: May be inferr'd, since peel and brougham were there!
Subject(s): Railroads; Railways; Trains


AT length the Steam-Chiefs with replenish'd force
To Manchester pursued their pageant course;
A grand reception there secure they found;
And though acclaim still made the air resound,
The blithe response was clogg'd with grief's alloy,
The fate of Huskisson still chill'd their joy.
The mutual greetings and the banquet o'er,
The Steam-Chiefs, in procession as before,
With equal pomp and eight-fold gorgeous train,
Forthwith returned to Liverpool again:
While still the eager crowds, we scarce need say,
Their progress hail'd with plaudits all the way.
Now in conclusion, 'twould be vain to tell,
How high at Liverpool was rapture's swell!
How rich the banquet and how choice the wines,
Where thus in state the mighty Arthur dines!
While eloquence, like the occasion, rare,
May be inferr'd, since Peel and Brougham were there!
