TO

Martin Charles Burney, Esq.

  Forgive me, Burney, if to thee these late
  And hasty products of a critic pen,
  Thyself no common judge of books and men,
  In feeling of thy worth I dedicate. 
  My verse was offered to an older friend;
  The humbler prose has fallen to thy share: 
  Nor could I miss the occasion to declare,
  What spoken in thy presence must offend—­
  That, set aside some few caprices wild,
  Those humorous clouds that flit o’er brightest days,
  In all my threadings of this worldly maze,
  (And I have watched thee almost from a child),
  Free from self-seeking, envy, low design,
  I have not found a whiter soul than thine.
