Anna Laetitia Barbauld (Анна-Летиция Барбо)


Written On A Marble


The world's something bigger,
But just of this figure
And speckled with mountains and seas;
Your heroes are overgrown schoolboys
Who scuffle for empires and toys,
And kick the poor ball as they please.
Now Cæsar, now Pompey, gives law;
And Pharsalia's plain,
Though heaped with the slain,
Was only a game at taw. 



Anna Laetitia Barbauld's other poems:
  1. An Address To The Deity
  2. Octogenery Reflections
  3. West End Fair
  4. Hymn To Content
  5. Verses Written In An Alcove
