LYSIAS THE GRAMMARIAN'S TOMB

Next nigh your right, as the Berytus library
you enter, is where we buried the sage Lysias,
grammarian. The site is chosen fittingly,
We placed him near to things of his he still, perhaps,
remembers over there--the comments, texbooks, and technology,
the rescripts and the tracts with annotated grecist forms.
And, thus his tomb, seen there, will always be revered
by us, whenever we go past to reach the books.
