OF

THE LIFE AND WRITINGS

OF

Lord Byron.

BY GEORGE CLINTON, ESQ.

When to their airy hall my father's voice
Shall call my spirit, joyful in their choice ;
When, poised upon the gale, my form shall ride,
Or, dark in mist, descend the mountain's side;
Oh! may my shade behold no sculptured urns
To mark the spot where earth to earth returns ;
No lengthened scroll, no praise-encumbered stone;
My epitaph shall be-my name alone :
If that with honour fail to crown my clay,
Oh! may no other fame my

deeds

repay :
That, only that, shall single out the spot ;
By that remembered, or with that forgot.

Byron.
