Epigram from Independence
By Tobias George Smollett (1721–1771)
 
THY spirit, Independence, let me share,
  Lord of the lion-heart and eagle-eye;
Thy steps I follow with my bosom bare,
  Nor heed the storm that howls along the sky.
Deep in the frozen regions of the North,        5
A goddess violated brought thee forth,—
Immortal Liberty, whose look sublime
Hath bleached the tyrant’s cheek in every varying clime!
