  • Lo where the stage, the poor, degraded stage,
    Holds its warped mirror to a gaping age.
    • Curiosity.
  • Through life’s dark road his sordid way he wends,
    An incarnation of fat dividends.
    • Curiosity.
  • Behold! in Liberty’s unclouded blaze
    We lift our heads, a race of other days.
    • Centennial Ode. Stanza 22.
  • Yes, social friend, I love thee well,
    In learned doctors’ spite;
    Thy clouds all other clouds dispel,
    And lap me in delight.
    • To my Cigar.
