Martial, Lib. I, Epig. I. - Poem by George Gordon Byron

'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.
