ON MARIA, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Praise woman still,' his lordship roars
Last Line: The more the truth I tell.
Subject(s): Flattery

"Praise Woman still," his lordship roars,
"Deserv'd or not, no matter?"
But thee, whom all my soul adores,
Ev'n Flattery cannot flatter:

Maria, all my thought and dream,
Inspires my vocal shell;
The more I praise my lovely theme,
The more the truth I tell.
