Poem by Hartley Coleridge


I have been cherishd and forgiven
    By many tender-hearted,
Twas for the sake of one in Heaven
    Of him that is departed.

Because I bear my Fathers name
    I am not quite despised,
My little legacy of fame
    Ive not yet realized.

And yet if you should praise myself
    Ill tell you, I had rather
Youd give your love to me, poor elf,
    Your praise to my great father. 

Hartley Coleridge
