Acrostic on Bonaparte
“J. D.”
The Monthly Magazine, XIII (March 1802), p. 141

Imitated from the French

B ards, teach the sweet harmonious lyre
    O f peace and joy the strains to sound,
N or celebrate with martial fire
    A name in ancient story found;
P aris the noblest heroes owns,
    A nd France in triumph shews her sons:
R esound the man of godlike aim,
T he pride of nature, child of fame,
E ternal glories consecrate his name.
