HIS OWN EPITAPH, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: One aeschylus, athenian born
Last Line: Who tried and found it good.
Subject(s): Epitaphs; Self

ONE AEschylus, Athenian born,
Son of Euphorion,
Lies under this memorial stone
In Gela's fields of corn.

At Marathon a sacred wood
His courage will declare,
Or ask the Medes, with braided hair,
Who tried and found it good.
