ADDRESSED TO A LADY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Rusticity's ungainly form
Last Line: Th' ungentle, harsh rebuke.


Rusticity's ungainly form
May cloud the highest mind;
But when the heart is nobly warm,
The good excuse will find.

Propriety's cold, cautious rules
Warm fervour may o'erlook:
But spare poor sensibility
Th' ungentle, harsh rebuke.
