"Ainsi va le Monde" (1806) by Mary Robinson

May, 1998
A note on the text of Ainsi va le Monde (1806)

 

AINSI VA LE MONDE.
INSCRIBED TO A FRIEND.

Written at the beginning of the French Revolution.

 

O THOU, to whom superior worth's allied,

Thy Country's honour---and the Muses' pride;

Whose pen gives polish to the varying line

That blends instruction with the song divine;

Whose fancy, glancing o'er the hostile plain,

Plants a fond trophy o'er the mighty slain;*
