POEMS BY BENJAMIN FRANKLIN
- Benjamin Franklin
- (Like the cover of an old book
- Its contents torn out
- And stript of its lettering and gilding)
- Lies here, food for worms.
- But the work shall not be lost
- For it will (as he believed) appear once more
- In a new and more elegant edition
- Revised and corrected
- The Author.
