Martial, Lib. I. Epig. I

"Hic est, quem legis, ille, quem requiris,
Toto notus in orbe Martialis," etc.

HE, unto whom thou art so partial,
Oh, reader! is the well-known Martial,
The Epigrammatist: while living,
Give him the fame thou would'st be giving;
So shall he hear, and feel, and know it--
Post-obits rarely reach a poet.

(The end)
Lord Byron's poem: Martial, Lib. I. Epig. I

The Rain Came Down From The Sky
The rain came down from the sky, And we asked it the reason why It would ne'er stay away On washing-day, To let our poor clothes get dry. The rain came down to the ground, With a chattering, pelting sound.
