Concluding Lines of Prize Poem on Hope
[Before October, 1772.] * * * * * * * * * * * * * But, above all, the POET owns thy powers-- Hope leads him on, and every fear devours; He writes, and, unsuccessful, writes again, Nor thinks the last laborious work in vain; New schemes he forms, and various plots he tries To win the laurel, and possess the PRIZE.
