James Grahame

Grahame, James (1765–1811). Poet, son of a lawyer, was born and ed. in Glasgow. After spending some time in a law office in Edinburgh, he was called to the Scottish Bar. His health being delicate, and his circumstances easy, he early retired from practice, and taking orders in the Church of England in 1809, was appointed curate successively of Shipton, Gloucestershire, and Sedgefield, Durham. He wrote several pleasing poems, of which the best is The Sabbath (1804). He died on a visit to Glasgow in his 47th year. His poems are full of quiet observation of country sights expressed in graceful verse.
