To where Sir Morogh's bones recline,
The vow that he had made.
Once more the sumptuous feast is spread
At Cornwall's ducal court;
Leads on each warlike sport;
* The winual tribute su iong paid by the Duke of Corowall to the King of Leinster, was designated "The Island Tribute."
“FARCE AND OPERA,"
Which out of Twenty-three Pieces sent in to the Manchester Dramatic Reading Society for adjudication, received second prize.
"FARCE AND OPERA."
A learned sage declared that virtue bloom'd
she died there. What a monstrous pity
Suffice it us, the lady still survives,
Truth," Practised in age,-inculcated in youth; With every grace that can exalt the mind, Refine the taste, and humanize mankind. While far o'er all benign Benovelence Extends her grateful cheering influence,– Mercy's sweet child, whom daily we can see, Linked with unostentatious charity. To prove these axioms is our present aim, And kind indulgence in th' attempt we claim ; Hoping that FARCE AND OPERA may prove A faithful portraiture of Virtuous Love, Disinterested, firm, unbiassed, free, With truth and friendship joined in unity,-A just delineation, although rude, Of memory's birthright, heav'n-bern gratitude, A miniature of Virtue's best reward, Our heart's approval, and the world's regard, All ending in delight without alloy, One cloudless scene of happiness and joy. And may the picture we would paint so bright Be lighted up by your applause to-night.
