467. Inscription to Miss Graham of Fintry

 HERE, where the Scottish Muse immortal lives,
 In sacred strains and tuneful numbers joined,
Accept the gift; though humble he who gives,
 Rich is the tribute of the grateful mind.
So may no ruffian-feeling in my breast, Discordant, jar thy bosom-chords among; But Peace attune thy gentle soul to rest, Or Love, ecstatic, wake his seraph song, Or Pity’s notes, in luxury of tears, As modest Want the tale of woe reveals; While conscious Virtue all the strains endears, And heaven-born Piety her sanction seals.
