Poem by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Guards Came Through (1919). 17. To Ronald Ross

[Who was torpedoed in the Gulf of Corinth in 1917, 
and was thus enabled to visit Parnassus.]

Ive read of many poets, Latin, Greek,
       And bards of Tarragona or Toledo,
But you, dear Ross, are surely quite unique,
       Blown to Parnassus by a Boche torpedo.
