Ebenezer Elliott Quotes

A Poet's Epitaph

STOP mortal ! Here thy brother lies,
The Poet of the Poor ;
His books were rivers, woods and skies,
The meadow and the moor;
His teachers were the torn heart's wail,
The tyrant and the slave,
The street, the factory, the jail,
The palace--arid the grave!
The meanest thing, earth's feeblest worm
