Bryant (Botta) by Anne Lynch Botta
from Poems (1848)
A tribute to W. C. Bryant

        Like the ancient Grecian marbles,
            Is his soul with beauty fraught,
        And as polished and enduring
            Is the sculpture of his thought.
        In the Pantheon of our country,
            The Valhalla of her fame,
        On the record of her poets,
            First of all is traced his name.
