First Line: Lord stanhope hit upon a novel plan
Last Line: Alas! The duck was doom'd not to succeed!
Subject(s): Stanhope, Charles. Lord Mahon (1753-1816; Steamboats


LORD STANHOPE hit upon a novel plan
Of bringing forth this vast Leviathan
{This notion first Genevois' genius struck);
His frame was made to emulate the duck;
Webb'd feet had he, in Ocean's brine to play;
With whale-like might he whirl'd aloft the spray;
But made with all this splash but little speed;
Alas! the duck was doom'd not to succeed!
