On Being Challenged To Write An Epigram In The Manner Of Herrick - Poem by Sir Walter Raleigh

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.
