These Verses Produced a Very Animated and Poetical Dispute

W ITH Evergreen when Ladies quarrel,
'Tis mutiny against the Laurel , —
Grace of THE H ERO they admire,
And prompter of their P OET'S fire!
Nay — though surpassing all belief —
They overlook the M YRTLE'S LEAF !
Perennial charm of B EAUTY'S crown,
Of P LEASURE'S wreath, and L OVE'S renown!
