INSCRIPTION FOR A COLUMN AT NEWBURY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Art thou a patriot, traveller? On this field
Last Line: And quell each angry and injurious thought.
Subject(s): Great Britain - History; Honor; Travel; English History; Journeys; Trips


ART thou a patriot, traveller? on this field
Did Falkland fall, the blameless and the brave,
Beneath a tyrant's banners: dost thou boast
Of loyal ardour? Hampden perished here,
The rebel Hampden, at whose glorious name
The heart of every honest Englishman
Beats high with conscious pride. Both uncorrupt,
Friends to their common country both, they fought,
They died in adverse armies. Traveller!
If with thy neighbour thou shouldst not accord,
In charity remember these good men,
And quell each angry and injurious thought.
