(22 January 1788 – 19 April 1824 / London, England)

Martial, Lib. I, Epig. I.

'Hic est, quem legis, ille, quern requiris, Tota notus in orbe Martialis,' &c.


He unto whom thou art so partial,
Oh, reader is the well-known Martial,
The Epigrammatist: while living,
Give him the fame thou wouldst be giving;
So shall he hear, and feel, and know it--
Post obits rarely reach a poet.
