Poems from Oriental Languages: To a Turkish Author


Translation in Dublin University Magazine

THAT none may dub thee tactless dund’rhead,

Confine thy pen to light chit-chat,

And rattle on as might a letter!

For ninety-nine of every hundred

Hate Learning, and, what’s more than that,

The hundredth man likes berresh better!
