At this point, my daughter, a second-year McGill University literature and art-history major, perked up: “Herrick? The poet?”

“No,” I countered. “Herring. The painter.”

“Oh,” she said. “Because there is a poet named Herrick.”

“Yes, I know.”

She looked at me. “Have you read Herrick?”

“Yes,” I said. “Of course.”(Globe and Mail)
