Marcus Valerius Martialis


Post-Obits And The Poets - Poem by Marcus Valerius Martialis

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.
