TO THE LEARNED CRITIC, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: May others fear, fly, and traduce thy name
Last Line: Shall outlive garlands, stol'n from the chaste tree.
Subject(s): Critics & Criticism


May others fear, fly, and traduce thy name,
As guilty men do magistrates: glad I,
That wish my poems a legitimate fame,
Charge them, for crown, to thy sole censure high.
And, but a sprig of bays, given by thee,
Shall outlive garlands, stol'n from the chaste tree.
