William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Georgian Verse.  1909.
 
With an Album
By Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)
 
I KNOW not whether I am proud,
But this I know, I hate the crowd:
Therefore pray let me disengage
My verses from the motley page,
Where others far more sure to please        5
Pour out their choral song with ease.
And yet perhaps, if some should tire
With too much froth or too much fire,
There is an ear that may incline
Even to words so dull as mine.        10
