“Down, wanton, down! Have you no shame / That at the whisper of Love’s name, / Or Beauty’s, presto!”

-Robert Graves “Down, Wanton, Down!”

 

What a rare, powerful, reminiscent flavour / Comes out of your falling through the stages of decay: / Stream within stream.”

– Lawrence “Medlars and Sorb-Apples”
