On Swinburne - Poem by Francis Duggan

It is true that Swinburne with words had a way
Though long dead his poems they are widely read today
He did bridge the gap between modern and rhyme
One of the most popular poets of his time
There is little doubt Swinburne was a major poet
In the Literary World one well worthy of note
In his lifetime a literary legend and in death his legend grow
All lovers of poetry of his poems would know
Of language he had such a marvellous command
His poems though not simple are not hard to understand
Lovers of poetry are happy to read and recite
The beautiful poetry that Swinburne did write
The mantle of greatness he surely did don
And in his poetry his legend it is living on.
