THE

POETICAL WORKS

OF

ROBERT MONTGOMERY.

OXFORD.

SECOND EDITION.

B

Quæ toto seculo famosa radias,

En ad te clamito, si forsan audias;
Non Romam alloquor urbem egregiam,
Non villam Cecropis, non academiam,
Verum te maximam Anglorum gloriam
Alumnus invoco, matrem Oxoniam.

TRYVYTHAM.

Ye sacred Nurseries of blooming youth!

In whose collegiate shelter England's flow'rs
Expand-enjoying through their vernal hours
The air of liberty, the light of truth;

Much have ye suffer'd from time's gnawing tooth,
Yet, O ye spires of Oxford! domes and tow'rs!
Gardens and groves! your presence overpow'rs.

WORDSWORTH.
