Daily Dose

From The Works of Lord Byron


"But far from us and from our mimic scene
Such things should be -- if such have ever been;
Ours be the gentler wish, the kinder task,
To give the tribute Glory need not ask,
To mourn the vanished beam, and add our mite
Of praise in payment of a long delight."

From Monody on the Death of the Right Hon. R. B. Sheridan
