Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, ed.  Poems of Places: An Anthology in 31 Volumes.
England: Vols. I–IV.  1876–79.
 
Stowe
On Lord Cobham’s Gardens
Nathaniel Cotton (1707–1788)
 
IT puzzles much the sages’ brains
  Where Eden stood of yore;
Some place it in Arabia’s plains,
  Some say it is no more.
 
But Cobham can these tales confute,        5
  As all the curious know;
For he has proved beyond dispute
  That Paradise is Stowe.
