PIERRE CHARLES ROY
French satirist and dramatic poet
(1683 - 1764)

O'er the ice the rapid skater flies,
  With sport above and death below,
    Where mischief lurks in gay disguise
      Thus lightly touch and quickly go.
        [Fr., Sur un mince chrystal l'hyver conduit leurs pas,
          Telle est de nos plaisirs la legere surface,
            Glissez mortels; n'appuyez pas.]
      - translated by Samuel Johnson, lines under picture of skaters, print of painting by Lancret
        [Danger]
