Song of the Geological Lecturer



Song, Drollery


Geology, Education

    The article is subtitled 'Intended for the use of Cambridge Professors'. Its author regards geology as 'a noble thing / To teach in Alma Mater', and believes that it will 'teach the student made of clay, / Cognoscere se ipsum'. Adds that 'there's nought so good as stone / To form the road to knowledge' and promises students that 'in my next I'll take a view / Of William Buckland's Megatherium'.
