Excerpt from Seventeen-Seventy-Six: And Other Poems Now for years, with a something of pride, You have looked, at times, on my poetic side; Or else, with your feelings a little askance, You have not failed to wish my 'rhyming in France. Well, your better sense I have ever enjoyed, And the other has but a little annoyed; So now, and With all Of a true husband's pride, These lines, in affection, to you I inscribe.
