„Ah, deeply the Minstrel has felt all he sings,
Every passion he paints his own bosom has known;
No note of wild music is swept from the strings,
But first his own feelings have echoed the tone.“

—  Letitia Elizabeth Landon, (27th April 1822) The Poet (4th May 1822) Sappho see The Vow of the Peacock (1835)
