Poem by Hartley Coleridge
I have been cherish’d and forgiven By many tender-hearted, ’Twas for the sake of one in Heaven Of him that is departed. Because I bear my Father’s name I am not quite despised, My little legacy of fame I’ve not yet realized. And yet if you should praise myself I’ll tell you, I had rather You’d give your love to me, poor elf, Your praise to my great father.
