Thomas K. Hervey, 1799-1859, The Devil's Progress

"He stood beside a cottage lone
And listened to a lute,
One summer's eve, when the breeze was gone,
And the nightingale was mute."

Segue with the photo gives this a distinctly Eastern feel, like an abbreviated tanka ... perhaps 1st wave of opening of the East? I could find nothing on him, just a couple of books he wrote - one on Christmas with a Dickens association - and that his middle name was Kibble.
