Thou more than woman!
Thou masculine greatness, to whose soaring spirit
To touch the stars seems but an easy flight,
Oh, how I glory in thee! Those great women
Antiquity is proud of, thou but named,
Shall be no more remembered. But perséver,
And thou shalt shine among those lesser lights,
To all posterity, like another Phoebe,
And so adored as she is.
