Description
Excerpt: Ye poets ragged and forlorn, Down from your garrets haste; Ye rhymers, dead as soon as born, Not yet consign?d to paste; I know a trick to make you thrive; O, ?tis a quaint device: Your still?born poems shall revive, And scorn to wrap up spice. Get all your verses printed fair, Then let them well be dried; And Curll must have a special care To leave the margin wide. Lend these to paper?sparing Pope; And when he sets to write, No letter with an envelope Could give him more delight. When Pope has fill?d the margins round, Why then recall your loan; Sell them to Curll for fifty pound, And swear they are your own.
