Borrow’D Plumes

Adam Lindsay Gordon

[A Preface and a Piracy]


OF borrowd plumes I take the sin,

My extracts will apply

To some few silly songs which in

These pages scatterd lie.

The words are Edgar Allan Poes,

As any man may see,

But what a Poe-t wrote in prose,

Shall make blank verse for me.
