Poems, Consisting of Essays, Lyrics, Elegaic, &c.
By Thomas Dermody. Dublin: J. Jones, 1792.
SONNET, TO MISS BROOKE.
POETIC Maid! whose sacred hand, perfumes
With sweetest incense the Parnassian shrine,
Rifles, of ancient song, the sickly blooms;
And bids the fading flow'rets, richly shine.
Accept, from one unknown, the votive line,
Line, well-repay'd! if from thy laureate crown,
Thou fling'st one vernal leaf, in pity, down;
Which PRIDE, may round my youthful temples twine.
