Here you will find the Poem Borrow'd Plumes of poet Adam Lindsay Gordon

Borrow'd Plumes

[A Preface and a Piracy]


OF borrow?d plumes I take the sin,
My extracts will apply
To some few silly songs which in
These pages scatter?d lie.

The words are Edgar Allan Poe?s,
As any man may see,
But what a Poe-t wrote in prose,
Shall make blank verse for me.
