Charles Robert Darwin.
BORN, FEBRUARY 12, 1809. DIED, APRIL 19, 1882.
A STUDIOUS porer over Nature's plan
Calm tracker of her steps, keen, watchful, wise;
Recorder of the long Descent of Man,
And a most living witness of his rise:
Long o'er his life-work may the fight be fought,
Yet leave him still a leading light of Thought.
