George Gordon Byron (Джордж Гордон Байрон)


To E——


Let Folly smile, to view the names
⁠     Of thee and me, in Friendship twin'd;
Yet Virtue will have greater claims
⁠     To love, than rank with vice combin'd.

And though unequal is thy fate,
⁠     Since title deck'd my higher birth;
Yet envy not this gaudy state,
⁠     Thine is the pride of modest worth.

Our souls at least congenial meet,
⁠     Nor can thy lot my rank disgrace;
Our intercourse is not less sweet,
⁠     Since worth of rank supplies the place. 

E—— was, according to Moore, a boy of Byron's own age, the son of one of the tenants at Newstead.

November, 1802
