CONCLUDING LINES OF PRIZE POEM ON HOPE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: But, above all, the poet owns thy powers
Last Line: To win the laurel, and possess the prize.
Subject(s): Hope; Optimism


BUT, above all, the POET owns thy powers --
HOPE leads him on, and every fear devours;
He writes, and, unsuccessful, writes again,
Nor thinks the last laborious work in vain;
New schemes he forms, and various plots he tries,
To win the laurel, and possess the PRIZE.
