Welcome to Cipher Saturday!  You've found the home of everyone's favorite weekend pastime, where a stylized photo of a somewhat famous person from history is provided here for you to identify.

Additional clues may be found in the cipher below:

W aors am tcfhibs pm uwjwbu okom,
Pih wb am tfss hwas W rwr zwys hc dzom
okom cb am wgzobr, xigh as obr am hsoa,
dzchhwbu cif jwqhcfm - ob sjsf szigwjs rfsoa.
Soqv bsk msof am vcas wh rcsg tzcoh

Wbhsffsr wb am uofrsb W’a bch hvsfs bck
pih mci qob jwgwh pm gvwd, xigh kohqv cih tcf hvs qckg.

So, who could I be?  That's the mystery!  Go ahead and take a guess and then go enjoy your day.  Check back tomorrow and I'll reveal the answer.  The first correct post will be declared the winner.

If you'd like to make sure that your guess is correct, enter his name into Google Images and this photo will be found on the first pages of the image results.

Here's the cipher if it helps someone.

I made my fortune by giving away
But in my free time I did like to play
away on my island just me and my team
plotting our victory - an ever elusive dream
each new year my home it does float
but not on the water or some kind of boat
interred in my garden I'm not there now
but you can visit by ship, just watch out for the cows.
