THE

FEMA LE POET S

OF

A MERICA.

BY RUFUS WILMOT GRISWOLD.

I AM OBNOXIOUS TO EACH CARPING TONGUE
THAT SAYS MY HAND A NEEDLE BETTER FITS;
A POET'S PEN ALL SCORN I THUS SHOULD WRONG,
FOR SUCH DESPITE THEY CAST ON FEMALE WITS.....
BUT SURE THE ANTIQUE GREEKS WERE FAR MORE MILD,
ELSE OF OUR SEX WHY FEIGNED THEY THOSE NINE,
AND POESY MADE CALLIOPE'S OWN CHILD?
SO MONGST THE REST THEY PLACED THE ARTS DIVINE.

Tus Four ELEMENTB: By Anne Bradstreet, Boston, 1640.
