EPIGRAM, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: On the sicilian strand a hare well wrought
Last Line: "perhaps of heav'n, if there a dog-star be."


ON the Sicilian strand a hare well wrought
Before the hounds was by a dogfish caught;
Quoth she, "All rape of sea and earth's on me,
Perhaps of heav'n, if there a dog-star be."
