James and Mary Ford, eds.  Every Day in the Year.  1902.
 
December 14
Washington
By Lord Byron (1788–1824)
 
(Died December 14, 1799)

WHERE may the wearied eye repose
  When gazing on the Great;
Where neither guilty glory glows,
  Nor despicable state?
Yes—one—the first—the last—the best—        5
The Cincinnatus of the West,
  Whom envy dared not hate,
Bequeath the name of Washington,
  To make men blush there was but one!
