And hearts that once beat high for praise
  Now feel that pulse no more.
          The Harp that once through Tara’s Halls.

Ne’er carried a heart-stain away on its blade.
          On the Death of Sheridan.
5416
    Good at a fight, but better at a play;
Godlike in giving, but the devil to pay.
          On a Cast of Sheridan’s Hand.
