Product Description

An interesting collection of original unpublished Lyric poems mostly of a sentimental religious nature, distinctly Rural, with a few of a Topical Nature. These latter include an opening poem on the tyrant Napoleon, on the Death of Canning, on the death of the Opera Singer Maria Malcbran, and one on the accession of Queen Victoria. The remainder are distinctly Rural in nature and some are family orientated including a couple with a lovely watercolour Portrait. There is a poem titled “Crypt Bells” referring to Gloucester’s “Cloistered Scences” which could give a clue to the location of the unknown writer. Possibly a clerical family. A lovely unpublished collection.
