HENRY FRANK LOTT.
"If thou indeed derive thy light from Heaven,
WILLOUGHBY AND CO., WARWICK LANE,
TO MY MOTHER.
To thee, who, fonder than all else beside,
These trifling flowers of song I dedicate,
In filial duty, and in manly pride :
Of public favour, granted or denied,
I've neither hope nor fear-for still elate
My heart will be, that it can consecrate
Our land abounds with, for I have no need ;
Consoling to thine age, I have my meed.
