Letitia Elizabeth Landon Quote

It was his last, his only field:
They brought him back upon his shield,
But victory was won.
I cannot weep when I recall
Thy land has cause to bless thy fall.


An Old Man Over the Body of his Son from The London Literary Gazette (1st March 1823) Medallion Wafers - The Vow of the Peacock (1835)
