Old Poem Saturday – Dog Epigram by Pope

 

EpigramEngraved_PopeTraditionally, an English epigram is a two line poem (not including the title) that has a little barb or twist at the end. This epigram by Alexander Pope – with a title as long as the poem – perfectly illustrates that tradition. The drawing (ink on paper) of a brush rabbit skull is by my very talented friend Gentani – check out his site here – he illustrates animals and insects with an eye towards conservation. Have a lovely weekend!
