William Cowper

(26 November 1731 – 25 April 1800 / Hertfordshire)

On The Benefit Received By His Majesty From Sea-Bathing, In The Year 1789


O sovereign of an isle renowned
For undisputed sway
Wherever o'er yon gulf profound
Her navies wing their way;

With juster claims she builds at length
Her empire on the sea,
And well may boast the waves her strength
Which strength restored to thee.
