PHILOSOPHY IN SPORT

MADE

SCIENCE IN EARNEST.

'Tis not enough that Greek and Roman page
At stated hours the sprightly boy engage;
E'en in his pastimes he requires a friend,
To warn, and teach him safely to unbend;
And levying thus, and with an easy sway,
A tax of profit from his very play,
To impress a value, not to be erased,
On moments, squander'd else, and running all to waste.

COWPER's Tirocinium.
