Hester Chapone

  • Thou gentle nurse of pleasing woe, / To thee from crowds, and noise, and show, / With eager haste I fly; / Thrice welcome, friendly Solitude, / O let no busy foot intrude, / Nor listening ear be nigh!

    • "Ode to Solitude," in Alexander Dyce, ed., Specimens of British Poetesses ()
