    It is my birthday,
    I had thought t’ have held it poor; but since my lord
    Is Antony again, I will be Cleopatra.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I held it truth, with him who sings
    To one clear harp in diverse tones,
    That men may rise on stepping-stones
    Of their dead selves to higher things.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    They darted down and rose up like a wave
    Or buzzed impetuously as before;
    One would have thought the corpse was held a slave
    To living by the life it bore!
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
