    The masses of the sea
    The masses of the sea under

    The sundering ultimate kingdom of genesis’ thunder.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    Some of the offers that have come to me would never have come if I had not been President. That means these people are trying to hire not Calvin Coolidge, but a former President of the United States. I can’t make that kind of use of the office.... I can’t do anything that might take away from the Presidency any of its dignity, or any of the faith people have in it.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)

    She left the web, she left the loom,
    She made three paces through the room,
    She saw the water-lily bloom,
    She saw the helmet and the plume,
    She looked down to Camelot.
    Out flew the web and floated wide;
    The mirror cracked from side to side;
    “The curse is come upon me,” cried
    The Lady of Shalott.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    You like it under the trees in autumn,
    Because everything is half dead.
    The wind moves like a cripple among the leaves
    And repeats words without meaning.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    “He swore that day till the leaves shook on the trees. Charming! Delightful! Never have I enjoyed such swearing before or since. Sir, on that memorable day he swore like an angel from Heaven!”
    —For the State of New Jersey, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
