Alexander Pope

born 320 years ago today

“What conscience dictates to be done,
Or warns me not to do,
This teach me more than hell to shun,
That more than heaven pursue.”

– from “Universal Prayer” 1738

One response to “Alexander Pope

  • ghost dogg

    The Link attach’d will take thee to a site
    That mimicks Pope in all it dares to Write.
    Tho’ Wit and Judgement far behind are left,
    It’s hoped that Pope thy Cholick Mood will heft.
    Of cult’ral Topicks high and low it sings;
    Pierian Springs and You Tube Things it clings.
    So, fly to Valley of the Shadwells soon–
    Thy clicks, my woful Hackny couplets’ boon!
