I have below lines, and Guess what can be the answer ?

    Sir, I bear a rhyme excelling
    In mystic force and magic spelling
    Celestial sprites elucidate
    All my own striving can't relate

What is your answer ?

Hint : William Jones

This is a well-known poem where

the lengths of the words are the digits of pi, in order.

The hint's relevance:

William Jones was the first to use the "π" symbol to refer to the ratio between the circumference and diameter of a circle.

    $\begingroup$ @RakshitShah Answerers (or OPs!) putting their solutions in spoiler tags is of little benefit if people then give the answer away in the comments. Try using ROT-13 encoding or similar to preserve the mystery for future would-be solvers. :) $\endgroup$ – Rubio Jan 27 '18 at 1:50
