Transcriber's Notes

Obvious typographical errors have been corrected.

It is not always obvious if verses in the original have been split through pagination; if there is doubt the split has been retained.

'Ode for a Social Meeting' has some words struck out and replaced above with alternatives. This has been represented with the struckout words underlined in red and the alternate words in boxes above. The font of the poem has been switched to monospaced to accurately align the two.

Both "Geoffrey" and "Goeffrey" are used as spellings for Geoffrey Chaucer's name without obvious reason. The spelling has been standardised here to the more commonly accepted (today) version "Geoffrey".

The title of "Spirk, Troll-Derisive" uses both "Troll" and "Throll" throughout the original text. The spelling has been standardised here to "Troll".

"There is no poem in the original beginning 'Oh! Weary mother' and it appears to have been an error. The page reference, '000,' is from the original."
