Song For The C--N

Charles Lamb 1775 (Inner Temple, London) – 1834 (Edmonton, London)

Roi's wife of Brunswick Oëls!
Roi's wife of Brunswick Oëls!
Wot you how she came to him,
While he supinely dreamt of no ills?
Vow! but she is a canty Queen,
And well can she scare each royal orgie.-
To us she ever must be dear,
Though she's for ever cut by Georgie.-
Roi's wife, &c. Da capo.

He has been referred to by E. V. Lucas, his principal biographer, as "the most lovable figure in English literature". more…
