Tobias Smollett Poems

The Tears Of Scotland

Mourn, hapless Caledonia, mourn
Thy banish'd peace - thy laurels torn!
Thy sons, for valour long renown'd,

Burlesque Ode

Where wast thou, wittol Ward, when hapless fate
From these weak arms mine aged grannam tore?
These pious arms essay’d too late

To Independence

Thy spirit, Independence, let me share,
Lord of the lion-heart and eagle-eye,
Thy steps I follow with my bosom bare,

To Leven-Water

On Leven's banks, while free to rove,
And tune the rural pipe to love;
I envied not the happiest swain

Come Listen, Ye Students Of Every Degree

Come listen, ye students of every degree;
I sing of a wit and a tutor perdie,
A statesman profound, a critic immense,
