Royall Tyler (Ройалл Тайлер)


Original Epitaph on a Drunkard


PRAY who lies here? why don't you know,
'Tis stammering, staggering, boozy Joe;
What, dead at last? I thought that death
Could never stop his long long breath.
True, death ne'er threw his dart at him,
But kill'd, like David, with a sling:
Whither he's gone we do not know,
With spirits above or spirits below:—
But, if he former taste inherits,
He's quaffing in a world of spirits.



Royall Tyler's other poems:
  1. My Mistresses
  2. Almoran to Eliza With a Heart of Ice
  3. A Love Song
  4. A Christmas Hymn Sung in the Episcopal Church at Claremont on the Anniversary of that Festival Decem
  5. Convivial Song for General Morris
