Treasure Island

Sir Walter Raleigh

(1552 - 1618 / Devon / England)

On Being Challenged to Write an Epigram in the Manner of Herrick


To Griggs, that learned man, in many a bygone session,
His kids were his delight, and physics his profession;
Now Griggs, grown old and glum, and less intent on knowledge,
Physics himself at home, and sends his kids to college.
