James and Mary Ford, eds.  Every Day in the Year.  1902.
 
April 25
Tasso
By Lord Byron (1788–1824)
 
(Died April 25, 1895)
From “Childe Harold”

PEACE to Torquato’s injured shade! ’twas his
In life and death to be the mark where Wrong
Aim’d with her poison’d arrows; but to miss.
Oh, victor unsurpass’d in modern song!
Each year brings forth its millions; but how long        5
The tide of generations shall roll on,
And not the whole combined and countless throng
Compose a mind like thine! though all in one
Condensed their scatter’d rays, they would not form a sun.
