Borrow'd Plumes


[A Preface and a Piracy]

PROLOGUE

OF borrow’d plumes I take the sin,
My extracts will apply
To some few silly songs which in
These pages scatter’d lie.

The words are Edgar Allan Poe’s,
As any man may see,
But what a Poe-t wrote in prose,
Shall make blank verse for me.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
