CONTENTS OF VOLUME I.
TO THE QUEEN.
REVERED, beloved,-O you that hold
Than arms, or power of brain, or birth,
Victoria, since your Royal grace
This laurel greener from the brows
And should your greatness, and the care
Then-while a sweeter music wakes,
And through wild March the throstle calls,
Take, Madam, this poor book of song;
And leave us rulers of your blood
May children of our children say,
She wrought her people lasting good;
