Erm....

Just found this quote in a book

All love at first, like generous wine,
Ferments and frets until 'tis fine

Samuel Butler 1692-1680



I've never heard of anyone who died before they were born before...

hmmm, ok

I'll rephrase that then...

I've never heard of anyone who died before they were conceived!

That is obviously assuming we're not talking about a 12 year pregnancy here...

But in my home village, there's a there's a gravestone in the old churchyard that shows the date of death of the incumbent as 31st February, so anything's possible.

Maybe it was B.C.?

Somewhat unlikely to have been writing poetry in Modern English in that case l-)

Still, it really is the only logical explanation...maybe he was seminal.
